Commerce is a city in Jackson County, Georgia, United States. It is ninety miles northeast of Atlanta. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 6,544.HistoryNative American HistoryBefore Caucasian settlers arrived, the area around present-day Commerce was inhabited by the Apalache People, who were ancestral to some divisions of the Creek Native Americans. During the late 1600s and early 1700s, other future branches of the Creek Confederacy moved into the region. These included the Talasee Creeks from the Great Smoky Mountains, the Tamakoa from the Lower Altamaha River, and the Bohurons, a mestizo people descended from European gold miners 32 miles to the north in the Nacoochee Valley. By the late 1700s, the Bohurons were also part of the Creek Confederacy, even though they carried Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic and Dutch names. The original name for Commerce, "Thamagua," is the Anglicization of Tamakoa.The Georgia Apalache Indians are frequently mentioned in 16th and 17th century texts. The Appalachian Mountains were named after them, as was the Apalachee River in adjacent Gwinnett County, GA. They controlled the trade of gold, greenstone, mica, silver and copper coming out of the Georgia Mountains. In 1564 and 1665, French Huguenot traders from Fort Caroline made several contacts with them. In his memoir, Captain Rene' de Laudonniere stated that he planned to build the capital of New France in their province. In 1651, an Englishman from Barbados, Richard Brigstock, spent a considerable time with the Apalache. By that time their political and religious influence has spread over much of the Southern Highlands and Chattahoochee River Basin. This confederacy later led to the creation of the Creek Confederacy.
