Indians to Oversee Cherokee Removal, 1838

From The Republican Compiler
Sept. 4, 1838


We learn from the Hamilton (Tenn.) Gazette of the 9th instant, that the conference between the Cherokee Council and General Scott has resulted in an arrangement by which the transportation of the Indians has been entrusted to the Chiefs of the nation, who are to receive $65 per head for the removal. The Indians are to be subsisted by the Government until they commence their journey, from which time the Chiefs are to furnish all the subsistence and means of transportation. They are to commence the removal on the 1st of September in detachments of one thousand, to follow each other after intervals of a few days. By the 20th October it is thought all will be on the way. The Indians, it is said, are highly pleased with the arrangement.
