In 1702, Carolina Governor James Moore and Colonel Robert Daniel led a force composed of colonists, Yamasee, and Creek on a raid of St. Augustine (Arnade 1959; Crane 1928; Deagan 1983). Encouraged by reports of the War of Spanish Succession in Europe, Moore planned his attack to clear the way for a conquest of the French living on the Gulf Coast (Crane 1928:75; Salley 1924:32).

Because the Yamasee War was such an important event, there has been a great deal of speculation, both by contemporaries and historians, regarding the causes of the war. Governor Craven speculated that it was the Spanish at St. Augustine who encouraged the Yamasee to attack (Headlam 1928:228). On the other hand, one Virginia Council member placed the burden on “the Carolinians themselves, for their traders have so abused and so imposed upon the Indians in selling them goods at exorbitant prices, and receiving their peltry at very low rates” (Great Britain Public Record Of¤ce 1924:54).

In 1711, a complaint was recorded in the Journals of the Commissioners of the Indian Trade that Thomas Jones, John Whitehead, Joseph Bryan, Robert Steale, John Palmer, and Barnaby Bull were settled within the Yamasee’s territory (McDowell 1955:11). Later that same year, the Commissioners declared “The Island against Aratamau Town [Callawassie Island], we will endevour, shall be secured for the Indians and Saunders prevented from taking itt from them” (McDowell 1955:18). In 1713, John Wright, former Indian Agent to the Yamasee, attempted to force the Yamasee of Pocotaligo to build a house for him next to their council house (McDowell 1955:42).
