Carolina in Crisis

This chapter describes how ongoing tensions between the British and the French, as well as the internal tensions between the colonies of Virginia and South Carolina, would lead to the souring of their alliances with the Indians. Despite the construction of Fort Loudoun in the Cherokee Overhills, Cherokee frustration with the trade, regulated and based out of South Carolina, was building, especially in Great Tellico and Chota. Circumstances had not yet pushed the Cherokees to break with the English, but constantly being misunderstood and mistreated caused their resentment and frustration to slowly build. Indian anger simmered as the war between France and England escalated. The American Southeast inched closer to open war.
