Savannah Tribe
   Their principal village, known as Savannah Town, was on Savannah river, nearly opposite the present Augusta, Ga. it was at New Windsor, on the north bank of Savannah river, 7 miles below Augusta. It was an important trading point, and Ft Moore was afterward built upon the site.

The Savannah river takes its name from this tribe, as appears from the statement of Adair, who mentions the "Savannah river, so termed on account of the Shawano Indians having formerly lived there," plainly showing that the two names are synonyms for the same tribe.
