Strategic Alliances and Trail of Broken Treaties 1700-1799
Yamasee and Muscogee (Creek) resist English slave traders
The Yamasee of Georgia ally with the Muscogee Nation to revolt against British slavers to end the practice of collecting trading debts via slavery. Within a year, the Yamasee are defeated and migrate to Florida to become part of the Seminole nation. Others migrate to Central Georgia and Alabama to join the Muscogee Confederacy (Nies, 1996).
