March to Removal, Part 4: " They Shall Not Be Forsaken" 1830-1833
The collision between the Cherokee Nation and the State of Georgia moves inexorably closer, as chronicled by Moravian Church missionaries in volume 9 of Records of the Moravians among the Cherokees covering August 1830-1833.
Continuing the subtitle series March to Removal, volume 9 opens with an air of peace and quiet that belies the future. That tranquility is shattered when Georgia orders all white men in the Cherokee Nation to take an oath of allegiance to the state’s laws or leave the country.
