In 1830, the Cherokee Indians were forcibly removed from their homeland by the very government the Cherokee Indians had supported during the Revolutionary War. The Cherokee had fought alongside the Tennessee Militia under then Colonel Andrew Jackson. It was President Andrew Jackson, who through his Indian Removal Act, forced the Cherokees on a 1,000 mile march to the land where they were ordered to live. This journey was later called the Trail of Tears. This paper will tell how the Cherokee lived before their removal, look at events that led up to their removal, explain the conditions of travel, and tell what has happened to the Cherokee after the Trail of Tears.

The French are attacking a British outpost (Fort William Henry) that has been put under the command of Colonel Munro and it is falling fast. Meanwhile, Munro’s two daughters Alice and Cora are being escorted by Major Duncan Heyward and an Indian named Magua to visit their father.
This paper will therefore attempt to prove that, the Cherokee community suffered human right atrocities from the American government shortly before and during the Trail of Tears. The Cherokee lived in the present day United States of America hundreds of years before its occupation by the Europeans. History proclaims that members of this community migrated from the Great Lakes and settled in the Southern Appalachians. When the Europeans started settling down in America, the Cherokee decided to co-exist peacefully with her foreign neighbors. The Cherokee lands consisted of Alabama, parts of Virginia, Kentucky, North and South Carolina and Georgia.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was written by Mark Twain in the middle of the nineteenth century. Much of the inspiration for the book came from Mark Twain’s own encounters. Twain’s experiences as a steamboat pilot from 1835 to 1845 provided a great deal of the historical context for his work. The novel revolves around a southern boy, Huck, and a slave named Jim who both reject society by running away in hopes of finding freedom. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn highlights and portrays the cruelty of racism that surrounded the south in Pre-Civil War America; the racism depicted in the book still to this day receives uproar of controversy and criticism.
