Description


The removal of the Native Americans west of the Mississippi River during the 1800s to clear the way for settlers is a tragic story that involves human suffering on a grand scale. The policy of Manifest Destiny said America was a morally superior nation that had the right to build an empire from the East Coast to the West Coast, much to the detriment of the Native Americans who stood in the way. This book will document the Trail of Tears, bringing to light many events that occurred in the background while describing a few prominent Native American chiefs, such as Seminole Chief Abiaka and Cherokee Chief John Ross, and some of the European-Americans with whom they clashed. We will also go beyond standard history and take a closer look at the assimilation that occurred between the white settlers and the Native Americans. The unique characteristics of the tribes that met the Spanish settlers who arrived in Florida and the other European settlers who arrived on the East Coast are often not fully realized. We will take a closer look at this blending of cultures to give you a clearer picture of what the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminoles were like by the time of the Trail of Tears. Here are just some of the things you will discover in this book:
  • Why tribes developed various forms of ChristianityThe reasons behind chiefs signing treaties to give away native landsGeorge Washington's views on the Native AmericansThe Five Civilized Tribes and how they differed from each otherHow the average person viewed Native Americans in the 19th centuryDavey Crockett's opinion on the relocation of Native AmericansThe Indian Removal Act of 1830 and how it impacted the Trail of TearsAnd so much more
