Did you know the saying "God willing and the Creeks don't
rise" was in reference to the Creek Indians and not a body
of water? It was written by Benjamin Hawkins in the late
18th century. He was a politician and Indian diplomat.
While in the south, Hawkins was requested by the President
of the U.S. to return to Washington . In his response, he
was said to write, "God willing and the Creeks don't
rise." Because he capitalized the word "Creeks" it is
deduced that he was referring to the Creek Indian tribe and
not a body of water.
