The Creeks were the biggest of the Alabama Tribes. They got their name from being seen living near a creek such as the Chattahoochee River, Tallapoosa River, and the Coosa River. For next two centuries all these areas became the heart of what is called Creek country. Starting at about 9,000 people in the 1680's the Creek's increased to about 20,000 during the American Revolution and gained to 21,000 by the time of Removal. Though the numbers went back and forth ove some time the Creek Tribe was generally compromised of between 30 and 60 towns. A very brisk trade ensued, and experienced traders such as colonial traders exchanged cloth, guns, and tools of steel for deerskins and Indian slaves taken in fight from other tribes.
