Influenced By Stuart And Cameron


From "The History of Georgia..."

Influenced by Stuart and [Alexander] Cameron the Creek and Cherokee Indians exhibited a threatening attitude.  For the patriots the present was dark indeed and the future fraught with apprehension...

Taking advantage of the unsettled condition of affairs and harkening to the advice and the bribes of royal agents the Cherokees in violation of established treaties began depredating upon the frontiers of Georgia and the Carolinas. To these lawless and bloody acts were they largely incited by Captain Stuart his majesty's superintendent of Indian affairs in the Southern Department and by Mr Cameron his assistant.
