Watson W. Jennison

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the Trans-Oconee Republic, an embryonic nation established on Creek land just beyond Georgia's established western border by frontiersmen who had battled Tories and their Indian allies during the war of independence. Disillusioned by the turn of events following the ratification of the U.S. Constitution and the subsequent intervention of the federal authorities in their relations with the neighboring Indians, backcountry settlers, white and also possibly black, created a republic that fulfilled their visions of the American Revolution.

Keywords:   war of independence, Trans-Oconee Republic, backcountry settlers, Tories, Creek Indians, U.S. constitution
