Reading: Trail of Tears: The Rise and
Fall of the Cherokee Nation. Editorial Review from Library
Journal: One of the many ironies of U.S.
government policy toward Indians in the early 1800s is that it persisted in removing to the West those who had most successfully
adapted to European values. As whites encroached on Cherokee land, many Native leaders responded by educating their children,
learning English, and developing plantations. Such a leader was Ridge, who had fought with Andrew Jackson against the British.
As he and other
Cherokee leaders grappled with the issue of moving, the land-hungry Georgia legislators, with the aid of Jackson,
succeeded in ousting the Cherokee from their land, forcing them to make the arduous journey West on the infamous "Trail of
Tears." Mary B. Davis, Museum of American
