Red Stick Conflict
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     For years the Muskogee (Creek) people had fought with the Cherokee. The two had similar life styles but different languages. They were also enemies.
 
2     When Europeans came to the Americas, they added a whole new dimension to the situation. The Spanish and French were ready and willing to trade with any tribe but weren't above playing one against the other.
 
3     The English also traded with the people, but they preferred to stick with specific groups they came to know well. They had a treaty for exclusive trading rights with the Cherokee and had constant dealings with the Lower Town Muskogee. These Muskogee had wealth and power as a result.
 
4     The Upper Town Muskogee preferred to deal with the French and Spanish until the American Revolution. They thought the Lower Towns had become too Americanized and supported the British.
