Abstract:

"Cherokee Removal excited the passions of Americans across the country. Nowhere did those passions have more violent expressions than in Georgia, where white intruders sought to acquire Native land through intimidation and state policies that supported their disorderly conduct. In Toward Cherokee Removal, Adam J. Pratt details this process in Georgia from 1800 to 1835, placing the tragic story of Cherokee Removal within the larger context of the United States' transition from a limited republic to a democracy that championed white male equality.
