The Politics of Indian Removal: Creek Government and Society in Crisis
U of Nebraska Press, 01.01.1982 - 237 Seiten
In the two decades after their defeat by the United States in the Creek War in 1814, the Creek Indians of Georgia and Alabama came under increasing?ultimately irresistible?pressure from state and federal governments to abandon their homeland and retreat westward. That historic move came in 1836. This study, based heavily on a wide variety of primary sources, is distinguished for its Creek perspective on tribal affairs during a period of upheaval.
