Creeks & Seminoles: The Destruction and Regeneration of the Muscogulge People

Front Cover
U of Nebraska Press, 1986 - 383 pages
""
During Andrew Jackson's time the Creeks and Seminoles (Muscogulges) were the largest group of Indians living on the frontier. In Georgia, Alabama, and Florida they manifested a geographical and cultural, but not a political, cohesiveness. Ethnically and linguistically, they were highly diverse. This book is the first to locate them firmly in their full historical context.
