Carolina in Crisis

This chapter details the rising tensions between the Indians and South Carolina, creating a widening rift within the Anglo-Cherokee alliance. Cherokees launched small-scale operations and threats in order to fulfill Cherokee blood law—a move that Governor Lyttelton would decry as acts of murder rather than acts of honor. The Cherokees also pressured the British to mend the Anglo-Cherokee relationship, but British officials did not take into account Cherokee culture and circumstances. Rather than work to mend the broken relationship between Cherokees and colony, Lyttelton exacerbated Anglo-Cherokee tensions. The issue worsened with the possibility of slave revolt, as the British found themselves increasingly distracted by the Cherokee situation.
