Daniel Blake Smith recalls President Andrew Jackson’s seizure of Cherokee Nation land and the Cherokee’s forced migration from the southeast United States to what is now Oklahoma. The journey that resulted in the deaths of thousands is known as the “Trail of Tears.” Mr. Smith reports that two factions of the Cherokee Nation surfaced during this time. One was led by Chief John Ross, who was determined to remain on native lands, and the other was led by John Ridge and Elias Boudinot, who argued that the tribe’s survival was dependent on moving to Oklahoma. Mr. Smith responded to questions from members of the audience at Malaprop’s Bookstore in Asheville, North Carolina. close
