    This is non fiction history about the decades long saga of politics, legal maneuvering, and greed that concluded in the grand tragedy of the expulsion of the Cherokee Nation from Georgia in 1838, commonly remembered today as the Trail of Tears This book describes this era of history largely through the stories of two of the most able leaders on both sides Andrew Jackso...

    It is ironic that Andrew Jackson, a murderer, kidnapper, slave owner, slave trader, land speculator acting on inside information, and last but not least, the cruel architect of Indian genocide, should hold such a revered place in the pantheon of American presidents so much so, that when the question arose of who s image to replace on money, it was the image of Hamilton that garnered the most attentio...

    This is the early 19th century history of the Cherokee Nation, the original owners in residence of the land the author, Steve Inskeep, calls Jacksonland.While treaties confirmed by federal policy guaranteed the Cherokees rights and land, President Andrew Jackson found every excuse to procrastinate when it came to enforcement Speaking of the humanitarianism and the welfare of the Indian people, President Jackson worked to free their lands for federal distribution.Inskeep shows how prior to ...

    As I read this I wish I could have sat and listened to Inskeep talk with Brett Riggs, Tom Belt, and Andrew Denson, men who gave input at an NEH seminar on the Cherokee I was able to attend last year Inskeep examines the events leading to the removal of the Cherokee by exploring the two key personalities involved, Andrew Jackson and John Ross The two shared similarities, Scotch Irish backgrounds, views of progress and democracy, yet there were also differences, chief among them, Ross s Cherokee As I read this I wish I could have sat and listened to Inskeep talk with Brett Riggs, Tom Belt, and Andrew Denson, men who gave input at an NEH seminar on the Cherokee I was able to attend last year Inskeep examines the events leading to the removal of the Cherokee by exploring the two key personalities i...

    For a relatively compact nonfiction work, I found a distracting lack of focus at times Inskeep set out for himself an ambitious but laudable goal of essentially writing a joint biography of Andrew Jackson and John Ross, though I didn t feel I left the narrative knowing a great dealabout either men For Ross that might be a dearth of source material, but even Jackson didn t feel particularly fleshed out Part of this is due to digressions to follow the paths of other people involved in the For a relatively compact nonfiction work, I found a distracting lack of focus at times Inskeep set out for himself an ambitious but laudable goal of essentially writing a joint biography of Andrew Jackson and John Ross, though I didn t feel I left the narrative knowing a great dealabout either men For Ross that might be a dearth of source material, but even Jackson didn t feel particularly fleshed out Part of this is due to digressions to follow the paths of other people involved in the events I can give a pass to short stops with people directly connected John Marshall, Catharine Beecher, etc , but far too much time is devoted to the reunion tour of Lafayette, which was a huge digression And I am saying that as a person who loves Lafayette I understand Inskeep was using the Revolutionary general as a conduit to talk about the state of the US at the time, but it took too long and had little to do with the story at hand It was jarring enough that when I la...
