Part 9: Tears, 1835-1838. Five millions of dollars ; The War Department does not understand these people ; Perchance, you may have heard that the Cherokees are in trouble ; The thunder often sounding in the distance.
Jacksonland is the thrilling narrative history of two men—President Andrew Jackson and Cherokee chief John Ross—who led their respective nations at a crossroads of American history. Five decades after the Revolutionary War, the United States approached a constitutional crisis. At its center stood two former military comrades locked in a struggle that tested the boundaries of our fledgling democracy. Jacksonland is their story. --Amazon.com
