Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the Creek War, which arose from the tensions between the Natives and the white intruders. The tensions between these two groups manifested themselves in many ways. One was the increase in interruption of the mail service between the nation's capital and Fort Stoddert or Natchez. Another was the conflagrations between frontier families and the roving bands of Indians, which invariably led to cries for revenge.
