The Removal of the Cherokee from Georgia

Two books, volumes 1 and 2, were written by Wilson Lumpkin (1783-1870).

Lumpkin bore a very active role in the removal of the Cherokee, so his books are written from first hand experience, albeit a bit biased.  Lumpkin believed that the two cultures could not leave together peacefully based upon early experiences where his family was “exposed…to frequent depredations from hostile and savage Indian neighbors,”  according to his autobiography.  Lumpkins was born in 1783 in Pittsylvania County, VA, near the Dan River.

The copyright has expired and you can read these books online or download them for free.
