Show Summary Details


The fourth chapter explores the establishment of the State of Muskogee, an entity that brought Indians, blacks, and whites together in the liminal space beyond the power of the authorities in Georgia and Spanish Florida. Bound together by a desire to resist the encroachments of white Georgians, the State of Muskogee created a multiracial society that stood in stark contrast to the emerging black-white world in Georgia and the South in general.
