    Hardcover ✓ Jacksonland MOBI ñ jacksonland ebok, Jacksonland MOBIThis 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 Jackson the seventh president and John Ross the “principal chief” of the CherokeeOne of the lessons I learned from this presentation of history is that there were many years of political maneuvering before the advent of the Cherokee move to Oklahoma One reality was that there were many voices of opposition to the expulsion and some close votes in congress where things could have gone a different direction For example the only reason the Indian Removal Act passed in 1830 was because the winning marg

    Hardcover ✓ Jacksonland MOBI ñ jacksonland ebok, Jacksonland MOBIThis post might get a bit political It also deals with a few issues many Americans prefer not to think about too much If either of those bother you you may wish to skip this The history of the American government dealing with Indians yeah I don't use Native American sue me is a long ugly tale of lies betrayal and unfair practices at best One of the worst examples of this was Andrew Jackson a President who many compare with Donald Trump That's troubling on many levels Jackson was a war hero serving in the war of 1812 His biggest victory was the Battle of New Orleans interesting for many reasons including the fact that it was fought after the war was technically over word hadn't reached either side that far south Jackson served in many interior campaigns within the US and many of his early battles were fought with the Cherokee by

    Hardcover ✓ Jacksonland MOBI ñ jacksonland ebok, Jacksonland MOBIFor 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 deal about 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
