Red Clay State Historic Park encompasses 263-acres of narrow valleys formerly used as cotton and pasture land. The park site was the last seat of Cherokee National government before the 1838 enforcement of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 by the U.S. military, which resulted in most of the Cherokee pe…
Any Native student of history knows that Andrew Jackson, founder of the Democrat party, was also known as “Indian Killer”. As the architect of the Indian Removal Act, Jackson was responsible for the death of thousands of Natives. Under his drunken rule the Cherokee Nation suffered the Trail of Tears, also bringing Davy Crockett (who was the only member of Congress to vote against the IRA) to say, “You can go to *** I’m going to Texas!” as he quit Congress in shame of their actions. The founder of the Republican Party, Abraham Lincoln, while known as a liberator for generations of African-Americans, was the instigator of the Long Walk to Hwéeldí for the Diné. Thousands of our ancestors were driven from their homes into concentration camps when crops, homes, and water ways were destroyed under the scorched-earth policy of the Army looking for gold to pay for America’s “Civil War”. Lincoln also ordered the murder of dozens of Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota in the largest mass murder of Ameri . ...
I knew I liked Sam Houston Controversy and trial 1830 and 1833 Houston visited Washington, DC, to expose the frauds which government agents committed against the Cherokee.[13] While he was in Washington in April 1832, anti-Jacksonian Congressman William Stanbery of Ohio made accusations about Houston in a speech on the floor of Congress. Attacking Jackson through his protégé, Stanbery accused Houston of being in league with John Van Fossen and Congressman Robert S. Rose. The three men had bid on supplying rations to the various tribes of Native Americans who were being forcibly relocated west of the Mississippi as a result of Jackson's Indian Removal Act of 1830. After Stanbery refused to answer Houston's letters about the accusation, Houston confronted him on Pennsylvania Avenue and beat him with a hickory cane. Stanbery drew one of his pistols and pulled the trigger—the gun misfired. On April 17 Congress ordered Houston's arrest. During his trial at the District of Columbia City Hall, he pleaded sel ...
THE TRAIL OF TEARS 4 years ago by Lester Unega Waya The Cherokees in 1828 were not nomadic savages. In fact, they had assimilated many European-style customs, including the wearing of gowns by Cherokee women. They built roads, schools and churches, had a system of representational government, and were farmers and cattle ranchers. A Cherokee alphabet, the "Talking Leaves" was perfected by Sequoyah. "I would sooner be honestly damned than hypocritically immortalized" Davy Crockett His political career destroyed because he supported the Cherokee, he left Washington D. C. and headed west to Texas. In 1830 the Congress of the United States passed the "Indian Removal Act." Although many Americans were against the act, most notably Tennessee Congressman Davy Crockett, it passed anyway. President Jackson quickly signed the bill into law. The Cherokees attempted to fight removal legally by challenging the removal laws in the Supreme Court and by establishing an independent Cherokee Nation. At first the court seeme ...
May 28, 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act into law, intending to move Native Americans from their ancestral land in the eastern portion of the United States, across the Mississippi to lands the government deemed worthless in what was considered the Great American Desert. Jackson, known as Old Hickory for being a tough *** having killed lots of Creeks, Choctaws, Chickasaws and Cherokees, was the hero of two wars within a two-year period, The War of 1812 at New Orleans in 1814, and the associated Red Stick War in 1813, with the hot-blooded younger Creek braves who were tired of white settlement on their lands and, after consulting with the great Shawnee chief Tecumseh who was building a confederation of tribes in the Midwest and South to fight European settlement, began to fight a Civil War with the older chiefs who wanted to accommodate the white settlers. As one of the Five Civilized Tribes who had welcomed European tools, weapons, farming techniques, clothing and even lifes ...
On this day we pause to remember all those who paid the ultimate price in service to their country. May 26: In 1293 an earthquake strikes Kamakura, Kanagawa, Japan, killing about 30,000; in 1538 Geneva expels John Calvin and his followers from the city; in 1637 a combined Protestant and Mohegan force under the English Captain John Mason attacks a Pequot village in Connecticut, massacring approximately 500 Native Americans; in 1647 Alse Young, hanged in Hartford, Connecticut, becomes the first person executed as a witch in the British American colonies; in 1830 the Indian Removal Act is passed by the U.S. Congress and will be signed into law by President Andrew Jackson two days later; in 1857 Dred Scott is emancipated by the Blow family, his original owners; in 1864 Montana is organized as a United States territory; in 1869 Boston University is chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts; in 1896 Nicholas II becomes the last Tsar of Imperial Russia; in 1896 Charles Dow publishes the first edition of the ...
Since I been in Oklahoma, I have seen a lot of Cities named after Indian Tribes. So I decided to do a little research. It started with the Trail of Tears. Trail of Tears is a name that the Cherokees and other Native Americans gave to the trail that they had to take when they were forced to give up their land and to migrate to Oklahoma. This happened in 1838 and 1839 because it was a part of President Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal policy. They called it the Trail of Tears because they suffered hunger, diseases, exhaustion and separation from thousands of loved ones. Many passed away during their forced migration. In the early 19th century, white settlers began pushing into the fertile lands of the southeast, some to farm, and others to establish plantations using slave labor. The Native American people living in this region were gradually forced out, particularly following the passage of the Indian Removal Act. White speculators moved in to take advantage of the newly available lands. They became P ...
From our friends at the Zinn Education Project on the horrors resulting from the Indian Removal Act of 1830. (-g)
Thank you for accepting me into your group, I have never traced my lineage however my mother told me her grandmother was full Native American and that during the Civil War her mother and grandmother were held captive by the union army and forced to cook for the calvary. She said that a soldier attempted to enter the bunkhouse through a window to rape them and her grandmother chopped his hand off with a butchers cleaver. She also said that her family had come north into the Ohio river valley to escape Andrew Jackson's raiders after the implementation of the "Indian Removal Act".
It doesn't matter what party you are from; racism is wrong and should not be tolerated. But there is a truth that one party has been consistent in it's hatred and abuse of the minority. From Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act of 1830, Democrats have rejected the equality of minorities and fought against their inalienable rights endowed by God. With the KKK and Jim Crow laws they fought to suppress the Black vote. They fought against Women's Suffrage and against the Civil Rights. Today they fight against the unborn, family, and Christian values. They fight against the right to work and America's exceptionalism. Now they coerce the poor to buy insurance that they cannot afford and deny them healthcare because they cannot pay the premiums. The War on Poverty has only increased the number dependent upon the government: they cannot boast a single city that has prospered under Democrat rule, yet oh, the millions, that are enslaved upon their patronage.
you do realize he is solely responsible for the Indian Removal Act and the Trail of Tears?
The Indian Removal Act was signed into law by Democrat President Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830. The act authorized him to negotiate with the Native Americans in the Southern United States for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for their homelands. The Five Civilized Tribes, consisting of the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee-Creek and Seminole were well established as autonomous nations in the Southeastern United States. The acculturation proposed by George Washington was well underway among the Cherokee and Choctaw. Thomas Jefferson's policy had been to accept the Native Americans' rights to their homelands. However, Democrat Andrew Jackson sought to renew a policy of political and military action for the removal of the Native Americans from these lands. Affected tribes included the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole. Other tribal people affected and removed were the Wyandot, the Potowatomi, the Shawnee and the Lenape. The Removal Act was st . ...
*Mrs. C walks up to ask about our history project*. Rachel: "Were making a game bored about the Indian removal act"
Cherokee Trail of Tears About North Georgia The Trail of Tears Between 1790 and 1830 the population of Georgia increased six-fold. The western push of the settlers created a problem. Georgians continued to take American Indian lands and force both the Cherokee Indians and the Creek Indians into the frontier. By 1825 the Lower Creek had been completely removed from the state under provisions of the Treaty of Indian Springs. By 1827 the Creek were gone. Cherokee had long called western Georgia home. The Cherokee Nation continued in their enchanted land until 1829. It was then that the Georgia Gold Rush became common knowledge. The gold for which Hernando deSoto had relentlessly searched, was discovered in the North Georgia mountains. In his book Don't Know Much About History, Kenneth C. Davis writes: Hollywood has left the impression that the great Indian wars came in the Old West during the late 1800's, a period that many think of simplistically as the "cowboy and Indian" days. But in fact that was a "mopp ...
Here is a brief synopsis of my up coming work, "Spirit of the Wind" Spirit of the Wind is a tale that follows the tattered remnants of a Cherokee tribe during the "Indian removal act" of 1830. As soldiers decimate the population of a proud nation a small band of survivors whom refuse to move west are pursued. In an act of desperation they pray to the Gods for power and guidance. Unbeknownst to them, their prayers are answered but at a cost...The cost is blood...The cost is humanity...

Andrew Jackson, the worst president in US History, & responsible for defying the Supreme Court & passing the Indian Removal Act, who also happens to be the most Anti-Native American President was the founder of the modern Democratic Party that we are familiar with TODAY! Truth be told.

Sorry, The Seventh President of the United States of America Andrew Jackson. You know, Indian Removal Act? Trail of Tears? Sound familiar? Riddled with Lead Bullets from being shot in Several Duels on the White House Lawn, all of which he survived and most of which his opponent did not.
ANDREW JACKSON WAS HILTER Killings of Native American sense 1492 Cherokee,Chickasaw,Choctaw,and Seminoles and murder Native Americans and stoles our land that started the Indian Removal Act in 1830.Made 7th President after doing so then adopted a Native American. At a time when fear of removal from tribal homelands permeated Native American communities, many native people served in the military during the Civil War. These courageous men fought with distinction, knowing they might jeopardize their freedom, unique cultures, and ancestral lands if they ended up on the losing side of the white man's war. In an interesting twist of history, General Ely S. Parker, a member of the Seneca tribe, drew up the articles of surrender which General Robert E. Lee signed at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. Gen. Parker, who served as Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's military secretary and was a trained attorney, was once rejected for Union military service because of his race. At Appomattox, Lee is said to have remarked to ...
"Although he signed the Indian Removal Act, Jackson also adopted a pair of Native infants during the Creek War."
The very next time your conservative friend starts going on and on about how evil it is for the President of the United States to "rule" by executive order, point out that the Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order. So was the Louisiana Purchase. You might also point out that the notorious Indian Removal Act was an Act of Congress and that the Dred Scott decision was made by the U.S. Supreme Court. The reactions you get will likely be very entertaining.

Most people recognize the name Cherokee, making the tribe one of the best known in history. The name itself means “real or principal people.” The Cherokee lived in the dense evergreen forests among the Allegheny and Great Smokey mountains. The area was plentiful with game, fish and plant life. Villages of homes made of wooden poles covered with woven mats were raised along the banks of rivers and streams. Typically the houses surrounded a round, community Council House used for social and religious ceremonies. The women farmed corn, beans, squash and sunflowers which they preserved for use year-round. Gourds raised were used as utensils, storage containers and ceremonial rattles. Women and children also gathered wild grapes, berries, nuts and greens to round out the diet of game and fish supplied by the men, who caught fish in stone weirs. Sometimes the men would mix a potion of poisonous roots and bark and place it in the water. This would make the fish disoriented and very easy to catch. Men and wom ...
Good morning. Good morning. I just want to share a few facts about Nanticoke (True spelling Nantikoke, we didn't have the letter "c", back in those days. . The original Nanticoke home land was located in Delaware and Maryland. Many Nanticoke people still live in Delaware today, while others joined Lenape and Munsee and live in New Jersey,Pennsylvania, Ohio. During the "Indian Removal Act", Sharp Knife (Andrew Jackson) force many from our homeland and placed us in "Indian Territory." We share this place with the Western Band Cherokees. We are known as the Delaware Indian Nation. The Nanticokes didn't wear long headdress. We usually wore beaded headbands with a feather or two in the back, pointed down to " Catch the Wind." Nanticokes painted their faces with different colors and designs for different occasions, and Nanticoke men often wore tattoos of their animal Totem. Men and women both wore their hair in long braids (sometimes called Blatts) but in times of war, but warriors often wore a Mohawk hairsty . ...

Concerning L. Brooks Patterson-To our credit, as Native Americans, I believe this must be handled with civility and tact. I more than understand my fellow Native American's opinion of the government and the dominate culture, as we have long suffered atrocities, but isn't it more than past time 'we, as Americans too', continue to take steps toward putting the 'us' in the U.S.? Let me remind us all that we are Americans too, we pay taxes too, we elect officials, they work for us, it is not the other way around. Even one of their greatest Presidents (as well as the first to propose 'The Indian Removal Act', placing our people on reservations) said himself; "Resistance to Tyranny is Obedience to God". Regardless of whether or not he gives a heartfelt apology, the public still must be made aware that this type of outdated attitude perpetuated by persons such as himself toward us, must go. This antiquated attitude is especially most egregious when he represents one of our elected governmental officials. Our cou ...

240 years ago, on December 16th 1773, demonstrators in Boston disguised as Native Americans, destroyed the entire supply of tea sent by the East India Company, to protest an unauthorized tax by the British government. The episode escalated into the American Revolution and the British taxes were eventually gone, so people could focus on further Native American related activities like the Indian Removal Act of 1830, the Manifest Destiny of 1845 and the Indian Appropriations Act of 1851.

Indian removals in Indiana began in the early 1830s and was mostly completed by 1846. The removals were preceded by several treaties, beginning in 1795, that gradually purchased most of the state from various tribes. The removals were part of a larger nationwide Indian Removal Act passed by the United States Congress and being carried out by the administration of United States President Andrew Jackson. By the time the removals began to occur, most of the tribes, like the Shawnee and the Wea, had left the state voluntarily, migrating into Canada and Missouri. The only significant tribes remaining were the Miami and the Potawatomi, both of which were already confined to reservation from previously signed treaties. The largest tribe in the state, the Miami Tribe, was the last to be removed, although many in the tribe were permitted ...

Israel's is the Indian Removal Act of 1830 all over again
Native American tribes began to be forced from their homelands in 1830 when the Indian Removal Act was passed by the Federal Government. As more and more European immigrants arrived in the United States, the government determined that more room was needed for them; therefore, pushing the Indians to unpopulated lands west of the Mississippi River. Yes Natives had no rights, yes other people were considered better than Natives. Yes Natives were sold as slaves and they were said to be animals with no soul. It is the evil that rules, the same still rules today.

The Black Seminole Woman In the early 1700s, Spanish and Native communities in Florida were offering refuge for runaway slaves from the British colonies. Meanwhile, dissidents from the Creek Nation were forming an independent confederation using the name “Seminole.” Persons of African descent found the Seminole communities particularly welcoming, and many developed relationships of servitude with the Indians. Although sometimes considered to be “slaves,” these blacks, in fact, enjoyed much more independence than their counterparts in the colonies that became the states of the Old South, particularly in their ability to maintain African-derived cultural forms while integrating with the Seminoles, often through marriage. Nevertheless, when Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, these blacks were considered property and, despite the armed resistance known as ...

One of the worse civil rights violations next to the Indian Removal Act of 1830!
People in America think history is boring. It's taught so that it's boring. It's taught that way so that young people are so bored out of their minds memorizing useless dates so that they never, ever question. Historical incidents in this country are never taught in the context of what was happening worldwide at the time so that young people are never made aware that what happened in one place could GREATLY affect what was happening someplace else. Take for instance Indian Removal. One thing that ticked me off about "12 Years A Slave" was the scene in the woods were a group of slaves runs across some "Indians" in the woods. They share a meal, and that's it. There is no context whatsoever for why that's in the film. The reality is that in his narrative, Solomon Northrup described a village close by in which "remnants" of a band of Chickasaw lived. He described their chief, the way they lived. He visited regularly. He also knew that "neighboring tribes" from Texas came to visit the Chickasaw village and th ...
Generations of schoolchildren have known –or at least have been expected to know –that the Mississippi River was “discovered” by Spanish explorer Hernando De Soto. (If nothing else, he was the first European to document the existence of that river.) Histories of the Mississippi River Valley traditionally began with De Soto’s expedition, or after a cursory introduction moved quickly to the entry of Europeans into the area. However, the river –and the lands it watered –did not exist in a vacuum. Many Indigenous Peoples called the area home long before the arrival of Europeans –and these peoples were not necessarily scattered or sporadic. The Mississippians, whose settlements ranged across the Midwest and Southeast, had been particularly dominant in the Lower Mississippi Valley, as were the various tribes descended from them. In fact, the center of Mississippian culture –and, for centuries, the largest settlement north of Mexico –was Cahokia, located near present-day St. Louis. Cahokia ha ...

By us just landing on this soil we created an apocalyptic wipeout of over 90% of the Native population, (almost 100 million people ... more than the entire population of Europe at the time by current estimates) just by introducing the smallpox virus to their people. We then proceeded to finish off our already tragic wipeout by creating things like the Indian Removal Act enacted on May 28th, 1830, which ended up paving the way for the European settlers forcibly moving the native tribes westward and boxing them up into neat little reservations. Simply because we feared what we didn't understand and couldn't control, just like we do today. But we claimed it was because we were part of a Manifest Destiny that made our people somehow ...
I've yet to understand why the "Indian Removal Act of 1830" is not discussed more in the grand scheme of American History. Not only is it seldom discussed, but the man who signed it is on our $20 bill. Seems a little strange to me (in the time of political correctness we live in) that we still have a man on our currency who was a strong supporter of slavery, and personally accountable for what was essentially a mass genocide of an entire race. You think someone would have made that change by now, maybe upgrade FDR from the dime to the twenty. Just a thought.

To set the record straight, I have not been nor will I ever be a "Good Indian". Nor will I support any party lines, only my own believes. I am against the social engineering practiced by this administration and his party mouth piece"MSNBC". LEAN FORWARD, my *** Is that like the "Great Leap Forward'?

INDIAN REMOVAL In the first four decades of the nineteenth century, the United States cajoled, bribed, arrested, and ultimately removed approximately seventy thousand American Indians out of their ancestral lands in the American South. Although Pres. Andrew Jackson is often deemed the architect of this program, the removal of the Chickasaw, Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole began years before the 1830 Indian Removal Act and Jackson's subsequent use of the military to relocate the Indians. In 1802 the state of Georgia agreed to cede its westernmost lands to the federal government, and in return the government vowed to extinguish the Indian title to lands within Georgia as soon as possible. In the following years the United States made only a few serious efforts to live up to that promise. After the 1803 Louisiana Purchase Pres. Thomas Jefferson pressured the Cherokee and other Indian nations to exchange their eastern domains voluntarily for regions in the newly acquired western territory. Only a few t ...

American History Chapter 12 Notes Chapter 12, Section 1 • Election of 1824 will cause a split in the Democratic-Republican party between Jackson (D) and Adams (R). • Jacksonian Democracy is the idea of spreading political power to all people and ensuring majority rule. • Jackson will give government jobs to political backers in a practice that will be called the spoils system.

My wife and I saw "Lincoln" tonight. Watching it, I was reminded of the mystery of the tides of history. President Andrew Jackson, a Democrat, enacted and enforced the Indian Removal Act of 1830, mandating the removal of Native Americans beyond the Mississippi - a horrifically racist act that resulted in the Cherokee Trail of Tears. President Lincoln and Republicans in Congress were responsible for passing the 13th amendment to the Constitution abolishing slavery. It was bitterly opposed by Democrats. It was primarily Democrats who opposed granting the vote for freed former slaves. The Democratic Party became the home of the Ku Klux Klan and for a time was significantly influenced by them. Even as late as the 1930's the Democratic Party had many Klansmen in its membership. In light of this history, I find it strange that the Democratic Party is now perceived as the party for minorities. Ninety-three percent of African Americans voted Democratic in the recent election, for instance, and they have done this ...

The donkey predated Nast by three decades, when it was used during Andrew Jackson's campaign, initially by his opponents, calling him a *** for his populist policies. Well known as stubborn, however, Jackson decided to co-opt the mascot, and used it to his own advantage. After Jackson retired, he was still looked at as a party leader, even though the party refused to be led, and the 1837 cartoon "A Modern Baalim and his *** showed him leading a donkey which refused to follow. However, the donkey image was not popularized until the ubiquitous Nast adopted it, first depicting the party as a kicking donkey, attacking Lincoln's secretary of war Edwin Stanton even after his death in an 1870 cartoon for Harper's Weekly.

During the Indian Removal Act, the Supreme Court said that the Cherokee Indians could stay but Jackson disobeyed Supreme Court's ruling, his actions and policies ultimately forced the westward migration of the "five civilized" Native American t ...

V.O.T.E - Victory of the Equals Friday, August 17, 2012 – 81 days to Tuesday, November 6 general election Born this day in 1786, frontiersman, Davy Crockett. we all know the Disneyfied coonskin cap legend, and certainly many in the Tea Party would respond to his insistence on being independent of party politics, as well as the fact that he was proud of not having an education. But do you know that he was a Congressman from Tennessee, and, as such, he opposed Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Act? That stance cost him re-election and this is what he said to his constituents who did not return him to Washington: "I told the people of my district that I would serve them as faithfully as I had done; but if not ... you may all go to *** and I will go to Texas." Where, as you likely know, he died at the Alamo. Born on this day in 1960, Sean Penn: “You tolerate me. You really tolerate me.” “When you have a precedent set like that, and you have somebody, George Tenet, acknowledging in his book that he k ...

"So you were told you were Black Dutch or Black Irish" by Pitter Seabaugh I got a call last week from my cousin Mike Ladd. We are both researching the name Ladd. He asked me if I had ever heard that the Ladds were of Black Dutch ancestry. I told him no but that I had heard they were Black Irish. I got to thinking about it and thought it might be of interest as to how the terms were borrowed, by Native Americans, to avoid persecution. The following is a quotation displayed on the Museum wall of "The Oakville Mounds Park & Museum" in Moulton, Alabama. Before the Indian Removal Act in 1830, many of Lawrence County's Cherokee people were already mixed with white settlers and stayed in the country of the Warrior Mountains. They denied their ancestry and basically lived much of their lives in fear of being sent West. Full bloods claimed to be Black Irish or Black Dutch, thus denying their rightful Indian blood. After being fully assimilated into the general population years later, these Irish Cherokee m ...
