“We have been made to drink of the bitter cup of humiliation; treated like dogs, our lives, our liberties, the sport of the Whiteman; our country and the graves of our Fathers torn from us, in cruel succession until…we find ourselves fugitives, vagrants, and strangers in our own country.”
John Ross, Cherokee

“Build a fire under the Cherokee, when it gets hot enough, they’ll move!”
President Andrew Jackson to the Georgia Congress prior to the 1835 Treaty of New Echota

Artist: Paul Revere and The Raiders
