The native Americans had a ordeal that's lasted long enough.There were wrongs on all sides though.Tribed chose between the French, English,and Spanish
to gain advantage over other tribes and that lead to their defeat.The Five "civilized" tribes that adapted white ways were betrayed by Jackson,losing
their lands.Today they are reclaiming their heritage to some degree.Glad to see it
Please read and consider this.
Genocide or move them to Indian lands outside US Soil after 1st the French and then the Brits used them to murder the settlers?
I starred you but you are wrong on the civilized tribes.
Only one the Cherokee were "considered" peaceful but they had had their run ins with settlers on the western side of the Smokey's. What caused the
"trail of tears" was Tecumseh from the Ohio area leading all the tribes in a murderous run of events spurred on by the war of 1812 British who
captured the famous Daniel Boone of KY fame. A fantastic escape we all should read from Ft Detroit by Boone saved Boonesboro days later.
Jackson fought both the Indians AND the British during these war years. He concluded that the settlers could not trust the Native American tribes to
again form another revolt on US soil. They were moved to Indian territories in the west against their will rather than the US gov Soldiers to have to
use genocide. Christians didn't like that option. Both sides have committed autrocities to the other for years and that is how it is. The losers
normally get nothing in history for being weaker.
Very honestly, Jackson saved our Republic and was cheated from his 1st victory as POTUS but won the next time.
