  3. My 4th Great died on the 19th day.

  4. I believe it was cause of gold. North Georgia and Alabama have a gold belt through them

  5. The real cause was new black, fertile soil for cotton plantations. Alabama Fever | Encyclopedia of Alabama

  6. The Cherokee Nation had their own court system, post office, light horsemen ( police) , capital buildings, newspaper, and was a complete nation.. with everything working perfectly. The citizens of the nation were not all Cherokee by blood but they had to abide by the laws of the land where they lived in Georgia , Tenn , Alabama that were owned by The Cherokee Nation. The Governor of Georgia said he could not govern a State where a Nation lived inside. The Cherokee by law did not have to pay tax to Georgia or abide by any State laws as they were not Georgia citizens but Cherokee citizens and they made their own laws about poligimy, liquor, trade goods, on and on. If a Cherokee broke the law a light horsemen controlled the situation and it was brought to a Cherokee court. Also just like any country you visit today there was borders…and you had to have a pass to cross into Cherokee country which could be obtained from indian agents. The Gov. Had no control …he wanted this Nation out. Gold…. Land was all a part because alot of the Cherokee had nice home places and were doing very well. The Govenor Started taking plantations before the removal by force for non paid tax to Georgia…that became long ..drawn out ..tiresome and didn’t work as he thought. He took his complaint to Supreme court in DC they turned him down …he went to Andrew Jackson and said but…we have gold .

    1. Thanks for sharing that info. on the Cherokee nation !
