The Trail of Tears and Indian removal

In 1838, President Andrew Jackson's administration forcibly relocated Cherokees from their homelands in Georgia to the Western territories. This book explores the events surrounding this removal, including the conflict between Cherokee culture's preservation and the call to assimilate, and the negotiation of legislation and land treaties.
