File this one under Good to Know!

"God willing and the creek don't rise" is a bit of folk wisdom typically thought to mean someone is committed to doing something assuming they're not hindered by any unforeseen circumstances or an act of God, as in, "I'll visit next week, God willing and the creek don't rise."

But contrary to conventional thinking, the phrase is actually literal, referring to the Creek Indians who populated this part of Georgia hundreds of years ago. Fort Benning's Main Post was known as Kushita Town, a Creek Indian "peace town."

The first recorded use of the phrase is credited to Benjamin Hawkins, a politician and an Indian diplomat in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. As you know, American Indians and the white settlers were constantly fighting for land back then, and diplomats like Hawkins had their hands full staving off conflicts and unruffling feathers.

At some point, the president requested that Hawkins return to the capital. In his response, Hawkins wrote that he would soon be on his way "God willing and the Creek don't rise." His capitalization of "Creek" leads historians to conclude he was referring to the Muscogee tribe located in this area.

If you would like to learn more about the Creeks at Fort Benning, join us for the next Benning Bus Tour Oct. 16. It's free and its fun and it includes food. What more could you ask? To reserve your seat, call 706-545-4468 or email benningmwr@gmail.com.
