Long Description:

The Cherokee Nation

“You asked us to throw off the hunter and warrior state: We did so - you ask us to form a republican government, We did so - adopting your own as a model. You asked us to cultivate the earth, and learn the mechanic arts: We did so. You asked us to learn to read: we did so. You asked us to cast away our idols in worship your God: we did so.” - John Ridge.

In the end, it was not enough.
