Documents of American Indian Removal

Author(s): Martinez, Donna;
Contributors: Martinez, Donna;
Abstract:

This powerful collection of documents illumines the experiences of the original people of the United States during American Indian removal, offering readers a unique standpoint from which to understand American identity and the historical processes that have shaped it.


• Deepens understanding of historical events by providing primary sources including archival material, removal journals, treaties, public speeches, and firsthand accounts of the responses of tribal members who faced removal and the whites who witnessed it

• Provides context for documents through introductions and chronological organization that together clarify how the land sales of confiscated Indian homelands built the economic base of the United States

• Gives readers an intimate and provocative look at the larger story of a racially and economically changing nation through tribal voices and those of their white supporters and foes

• Offers a compelling view of the struggle for a segregated non-native political and social structure in the founding of the United States
