Image of a map of Georgia, engraved around 1745, showing the territory inhabited by the Yamacraw Indians, a group formed in 1728 by disaffected Creek and Yamasee Indians. The Yamacraws, led by Tomochichi, established their first community on the bluffs of the Savannah River. After the arrival of James Oglethorpe in 1733, the group agreed to move north to accommodate Oglethorpe's plans to build an outpost, which later became the city of Savannah.
From the reprinted map included in History of Georgia, by C. Howell, published in 1926.
