The Creek War of 1813 and 1814
My topic for my paper looks at the conflics of the early Florida settlers and the native americans inhabiting that area. I will focus primarily of the First Seminole War, and even more specifically the Creek War of 1813 and 1814. The article i have choosen to blog about is Ross Hassig's article Internal Conflict in the Creek War of 1813 and 1814 published in the journal Ethnohistory. Although this article focuses primarily on the problems faced by the non native groups, the article has a great deal of information on the Creek War itself. This information will be extremely used ful in constructiong the background information of the war itself. It will also provide some interesting insight on the internal disputes of the invading colonists, which will provide my paper with a uniguw perspective that goes beyond the native-colonist fights.
