The Cherokee-Creek War, which lasted roughly from 1715 to 1755, was the longest and most destructive conflict between Cherokees and other indigenous peoples during the eighteenth century. The war's early phases revealed customary disunity among Cherokees from different towns and regions, since villagers rarely had a common enemy when it came to intertribal warfare. The Cherokees engaged multitudes of Indians from near and far who all brought varying agendas to their mountain homeland. Imperial and colonial powers exerted additional pressure, which further complicated Cherokee relations with their indigenous neighbors. As a result, the Cherokee-Creek War was much more than a conflict between two southeastern Indian peoples. Issues of war and peace between the Cherokees and Creeks were particularly influenced by the northern Indians, “Settlement Indians”, and South Carolina.
