Description


Two manuscripts in one book:


  • Native American Tribes: An Enthralling Guide to the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole
  • Trail of Tears: An Enthralling Guide to the Choctaw and Chickasaw Removal, the Seminole Wars, Creek Dissolution, and Forced Relocation of the Cherokee Tribe


The "Five Civilized Tribes" tried to adapt to the American way of life, while others fought to keep their land. Which was more successful? This book will attempt to tell their story, the story of those five tribes. It will not go back into the distant past, and it will not be able to cover modern issues within the Native American community. But it will tell the story of how a group of people dealt with a world that had suddenly and drastically changed-and continued to change-and how they dealt with these changes as Native Americans.


In the first part of this book, you'll know:


  • The Five Civilized Tribes: Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Choctaw, and Chickasaw
  • The role of disease in the European colonization of America
  • Great Native American fighters like Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, and Black Hawk
  • Great Native American leaders like Pushmataha, Chief John Ross, and Blue Jacket
  • What role Andrew Jackson played in the Indian Removal Act
  • The reality of Native Americans who owned slaves
  • The real story behind the Trail of Tears
  • Great battles like Fallen Timbers, Tippecanoe, Little Bighorn, and St. Clair's Defeat
  • Massacres at Sand Creek and Wounded Knee and the devastation at Prospect Bluff
  • How the Native Americans used and were used by the Americans, British, and Spanish in the southeastern United States


The removal of the Native Americans west of the Mississippi River during the 1800s to clear the way for settlers is a tragic story that involves human suffering on a grand scale.


In the second part of this book, you will discover:


  • Why tribes developed various forms of Christianity
  • The reasons behind chiefs signing treaties to give away native lands
