Two Brief Articles On Cherokee Removal, 1838

From The Adams Sentinel
Gettysburg, Pa.
June 18, 1838

The Athens, Tenn. Courier, speaking of the efficient preparations which Gen. Scott had made and was making for the removal of the Cherokees, states that the circulation of reports among them that two years more were to be allowed them, had done some mischief. Previously, the Indians were coming in, and employing the settlers to convey them to the points of embarkation, but since then the reports in question had put a stop to these voluntary movements.


The Secretary of War, Mr. Poinsett, has received from Governor Gilmer of Georgia an answer to a communication in regard to the affairs of the Cherokees, which is in the strongest manner antagonist to the course pursued by the General Government. His excellency treats the subject of immediate removal as a matter involving the private rights of the proprietors of the Cherokee lands under the State of Georgia, and consequently not open to discussion. He intimates very plainly, that in the event of any effort on the part of the Government at Washington to throw obstacles in the way of the measure, the consequence will be a collision between it and the State of Georgia, as the latter will cause the removal to proceed at all hazard.
