Nice item on the "Trail of Tears"...
Item # 656648
June 2, 1838
NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Washington City, June 2, 1838 Page 2 has a nice article concerning the infamous Trail of Tears headed: "Removal of The Cherokees" which is a letter signed by Winfield Scott to the Cherokee Indians which begins: "The president of the United States has sent me, with a powerful army to cause you, in obedience to the treaty of 1835, to join that part of your people who are already established in prosperity on the other side of the Mississippi..." with much more. A great letter (see).
The Trail of Tears was the relocation of Native Americans including Cherokee, Creek, Seminole & Choctaw nations from their homelands to the Indian Territory (Oklahoma). Estimates are that 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokees died on route.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 x 12 inches, nice clean condition.
