And ALL of it was taken from the American Indians. Oddly this article mentions Andrew Jackson because what he did to the American Indian is no less hideous than what Hitler did to the Jews!
I agree John
That was a long time ago. Let it go. Indians came here from somewhere else themselves.
NO WE WILL NOT LET IT GO. ITS HISTORY AND HISTORY CAN NOT BE CHANGED. IT WAS A BLOODY,TERRIBLE TIME IN HISTORY,JUST LIKE THE NAZIS,SLAVERY AND MORE.BUT WE CAN NOT STICK OUR HEAD IN THE SAND AND PRETEND THESE THINGS NEVER HAPPENED.TO KEEP FROM REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER, WE MUST LOOK BACK ON HISTORY AND LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES. SO NO LISA, WE CANNOT LET IT GO.
John, that’s about the most idiotic statement you could make. European settlers fought and took the land from the natives and paid with blood, the blood of many men, women, and children. The natives lost! They were living like the Europeans had lived 3 or 4 thousand years before. No meatlergy, large scale farming, no unity of any consequence, and they didn’t even have the wheel. Did I mention they lost? They didn’t just sell their land for wooden nickels.
On the other hand, Hitler rounded up people and exterminated them. He didn’t segragate them and give them their own land. No comparison.
I personally don’t agree with Jackson’s removal of the natives but his disregard for the Constitution is how he did it. The Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional but he did it anyway. A Great Democrat President, revirered by the party today.
Soo true! From a proud decendent of smallpox congurer of settico and pigion moytoy! Parents of chief oconostata and my gggggggreat grandfather cherokee william scott!
In the Cumberland journals of the Cumberland settlements of Middle Tennessee Doctor Henderson did purchase the land. Between the Green river and Cumberland river but the State of Virginia said it was theirs and failed to compensate Henderson. Many different states an individuals. There was an attempt for a state tax in 1818. A petition stopped it for Middle Tennessee because the states boundary hadn’t been settled. We are spoiled by hindsight by not being aware of what when on.
The way they were treated is a shameful part of this country’s history and the knowledge they had would have been worth untold worth for healing with natural things and Andrew Jackson was a cold hearted man who only saw dollar signs
Oh that makes sense now. My father’s people lived in Tennessee, moved to Alabama and enlisted in the Confederacy to fight in the Civil War. Then moved to Arkansas after the war, as Alabama was destroyed.
Very interesting reading maybe thats why I can not find my great great grand father parents some say they were from Flatrock Tenn and some say Flactrock S.C. still can’t find them.
There’s a Flatrock Between Shelbyville and Lynchburg
This is great. Didn’t understand why locating GGGG grandfather movements would be difficult.
Government and business man hasn’t changed
Very interesting story. There is so much more to American history than what we were taught.
I am slowly learning that I believe, my relatives lived in NC & now it is TN.
But who was Glasgow?
James Glasgow, sec. Of state- No. Carolina. Guilty of awarding illegal land grants. Resigned from office in shame and subsequently the county named for him was re-named to Green county. After Nathaniel Green I believe.
Thanks for this info, it really does explain the Tennessee sojourn.
It’s easy mostly every state claimed Alabama and Mississippi as part of their own state.
People did not move as often as counties and towns did. Do some digging and dig up the truth of the matter.
Start at Mobile and Pensacola – not New Orleans – it’s new and came a little later.
Actually the land was granted in a place called Tensa / Tensaw and was removed later to the 35th degree north latitude.
The alternative was to be Repugnant to the United States Constitution.
