Editorial Reviews


"Negotiating for Georgia offers the reader a satisfying, well-written, thoroughly researched, and detailed account of the relations of Indians and colonists. The author treats Tomochichi with greater respect than he usually receives, and elevates him in importance. She also offers a different but convincing interpretation of the Indians' contribution to Oglethorpe's campaign in Spanish Florida."--Edward J. Cashin, Augusta State University

"In this reexamination of early Georgia history, Sweet reconstructs the story of Trustee Georgia around the themes of first contact between natives and newcomers and the process of negotiation that ensued between the two cultures as Creeks and Georgians entered into collaboration and, at times, conflict."--Kathryn E. Holland Braund, author of Deerskins and Duffels: Creek Indian Trade with Anglo-America, 1685–1815

"In revisiting Georgia's founding and its impact on intercultural relations, Sweet updates standards interpretations and provides nuanced information lacking in past treatments of the region and era. . . . As a result, Negotiating for Georgia functions as an important interpretation of the region's development based on a fusion of old and new theoretical bases. It is both a keen assessment of a locale often ignored by historians of the early southeast and a reminder of why certain traditional models of assessment obscure as much as they reveal.”--Florida Historical Quarterly

"A work that has many merits . . . Sweet’s book is successful on its own terms and has much to recommend it. . . . Negotiating for Georgia is a welcomed addition to the as-of-yet relatively small corpus of literature covering the early history of a much-overlooked colony."--Journal of American History

"Recommended for historians interested in the Colonial South and for regional libraries . . . valuable to those scholars interested in the specific analytical methods of quantitative analysis and cultural negotiation."--Georgia Historical Quarterly

Format: Hardcover
During the short time of the Trustee Era, the leader of the British colony of Georgia James Oglethorpe worked to establish a mutually beneficial, peaceful relationship with the Creek Indians, whose leader in this was Tomochichi. The activities between the two parties have a resemblance to the diplomatic activities between two countries. On a trip to England to get guidance on the developing negotiations, Oglethorpe took Tomochichi and other Creeks as representatives of the Creek nation. The relationship between the Creeks and the Georgia colony eventually worked out involved trade, land rights, and legal protections; and it was the basis for a military alliance in the War of Jenkin's Ear against the Spanish over differences in north Florida. The "charter" between the English colonists and the Creeks did not hold up with the coming of the Revolutionary War. In the early 1800s, the Creeks were relocated to Oklahoma. Sweet's account of this exceptional charter, or treaty, between European colonists and Native Americans evidences sophisticated and enlightened political behavior by both parties. This author is an assistant professor of history at Baylor.
