Opinion on the right of the state of Georgia to extend her laws over the Cherokee Nation by William Wirt( )

William Wirt, attorney for the Cherokee Nation and U.S. Attorney General (1817-1829), sets forth an argument for the right of the Cherokees to their lands east of the Mississippi River and against the extension of the laws of Georgia over the Cherokee territory. Wirt outlines the history of negotiations between the U.S. and the Cherokee Nation to establish the fact that the Cherokee Nation is a sovereign state with its own laws and that it is not within the jurisdiction of the State of Georgia. Wirt goes on to say that Georgia's actions are unconstitutional and in violation of solemn treaties made by the United States
