dc.description.abstractThis research attempted to understand the underlying causes and consequences of the Creek-Choctaw War of 1766-1776. Previous studies held that the war was fomented by British leadership in North America out of a desire to channel indigenous violence away from colonial settlements. However, it is apparent the war began from a small spat of traditional violence and then spun out of control. Ultimately, the war significantly weakened both the Creek and Choctaw nations, especially the former. Neither nation was in a position to be a deciding factor in the American Revolution, and both were subject to invasion by the new republic.
