Native American Inhabitants of the Coastal Plain Region: Account of Militia and Residents Occupying the Wiregrass Regions

In the early to mid-1800s, militia and residents occupying the Wiregrass Regions wrote letters to officials in Milledgeville – Georgia’s capital. These letters offer a glimpse into what occurred as settlers moved into the region and state and federal governments enforced Indian Removal Policies. These correspondences, albeit limited to the settlers’ perspective, demonstrate how the Coastal Plain region became a transitionally frontier and corridor of violence as one culture worked to establish itself and another society was forced to exit. (“Troublesome Neighbors” - A soldier used this phrase to describe Native Americans traveling through the region.)
