The Crisis in Virginia

Deconstructing the Cherokee Nation

The emerging crisis became an interregional affair, but vengeful Cherokees limited their attacks to Virginia to maintain stable relations with Carolina and its traders. Efforts to contain the conflict appeared to work. The Overhill people did not support other Cherokees in their raids against Virginia, and the Chota-based leadership rebuked hostile towns for their actions. Perhaps the most consequential change was the emergence of Virginia as a key player in Cherokee country. Virginians had long maintained trading connections to the Cherokees, but Williamsburg never mounted a serious challenge to Charlestown's hold on the southeastern deerskin trade. Nevertheless, Carolina remained in constant vigilance against “those Interlopers.” The Treaty of 1730 added to this potential trading rivalry with its ambiguous language. The trade alliance, in short, became more martially oriented as the Seven Years' War progressed.
