Quantity: 0.4 Linear feet (1 document box)
Abstract:The collection consists of notes, in longhand and typescript, concerning Native Americans in Georgia. The typescript is extremely inaccurate, with many typographical errors, due, no doubt, to the typist's inability to read the handwritten pages. These handwritten notes may have been compiled by a Mr. Bynum. Notes are from various sources, chief of which are: 1.) Arredondo's historical proof of Spain's title to Georgia, by H. E. Bolton ; 2.) Early history of the Creek Indians, by John R. Swanton ; 3.) The Spanish missions of Georgia, by John Tate Lanning ; 4.) A migration legend of the Creek Indians, by A. S. Gatschet ; 5.) Annual reports of the Bureau of American ethnology, Smithsonian Institution ; 6.) American state papers ; 7.) Publications of the Florida Historical Society ; 8.) Colonial records of Georgia ; 9.) Collections of the Georgia Historical Society ; and 10.) County histories. Topics covered include: customs, dance, government, migrations, origins, Old Brim, the Creek, treaties and warfare.
