America's Hundred Years' War

This chapter illustrates how the 1783 Treaty of Paris reintroduced chaotic conditions along the border between American Georgia and Spanish Florida, a hostile environment directly and adversely affecting the Florida Indians. Since 1763, British ownership of both territories allowed for more efficient control over the region, thus keeping disorder to a minimum. But, once Florida reverted to Spanish control and Georgia became an independent republic, an international border once again separated the peoples residing in the area.

Keywords:   1783 Treaty of Paris, Spanish Florida, American Georgia, Florida Indians, republic, international border, territorial control
