US HISTORY:

Discussed Tuesday’s reading assignment and turned it in.

NOTES:

• Washington’s plan included impartial justice toward Indians; regulating the buying of Indian lands; promotion of commerce; promotion of experiments to civilize or improve Indian society; and punishing those who violated Indian rights.

• The tribes of the southeast adopted Washington’s policy as they established schools, adopted the practice of private property, built homes, farmed, educated their children, and embraced Christianity and slavery.

• The government appointed agents to live among the Indians and to teach them how to live like whites.

 

Read p. 268-271: “The Trail Where They Cried”

1. Despite Washington’s “civilization program”, what were the Cherokees WILLING and UNWILLING to do to keep their land?

2. What views did President Jackson and the state of Georgia hold on the Cherokee and the nation’s effort to “civilize”? Explain why they held these views?

3. Explain the divisions within the Cherokee nation. What caused these divisions? What role did it play in their removal from native lands?
