  Treaty of Fort Wilkinson

Entitled "Treaty with the Creeks, 1802" this treaty ceded two separate pieces of Creek land, one a small strip of land west of the Oconee River and the other a small strip of land in southeast Georgia. The treaty also gave the United States the right to build garrisons to "protect" its frontiers. The treaty was signed for the U. S. by James Wilkinson (for whom the fort was named), then Brigadier General of the Army, Benjamin Hawkins, Creek Indian agent, and Andrew Pickens of South Carolina.
