Jacksonland review ´ 103 Jacksonland is the thrilling narrative history of two men President Andrew Jackson and Cherokee chief John Ross who led their respective nations at a crossroads of American history Five decades after the Revolutionary War the United States approached a constitutional crisis At its center stood two former military comrades locked in a struggle that tested the boundaries of our fledgling democracy Jacksonland is their story One man we recognize Andrew Jackson war hero populist and exemplar of the expanding South whose first major initiative as president instigated the massive expulsion of Native Americans known as the Trail of Tears The other is a half forgotten figure John Ross a mixed race Cherokee politician and diplomat who used the United States’ own legal system and democratic ideals to oppose Jackson Representing one of the Five Civilized Tribes who had adopted the ways of white settlers c. This is the early 19th century history of the Cherokee Nation the original owners in residence of the land the author Steve Inskeep calls Jacksonland While treaties confirmed by federal policy guaranteed the Cherokees rights and land President Andrew Jackson found every excuse to procrastinate when it came to enforcement Speaking of the humanitarianism and the welfare of the Indian people President Jackson worked to free their lands for federal distributionInskeep shows how prior to his presidency Jackson s self dealing worked to pioneer federal land policy As the leader of a Tennessee militia Jackson removed Indians from lands which he later arranged to purchase or otherwise acuire Inskeep also shows how the Cherokee who helped in the removal of the Creek and fought with the US against the British in the War of 1812 were forced into a position where they had to bargain to keep what little they had Each bargaining session ended in further erosion of their positionThe portrait of John Ross who with 18 Cherokee blood led his people legally and politically is outstanding Other interesting people appear such as Catherine Beecher sister to the famous Harriet and Henry the Cherokee Phoenix editor Elias Boudinot Jeremiah Evarts who for religious reasons supported rights for Indians and Major Ridge and his son who like John Ross were Cherokee advocates and depending on how you interpret events profiteersYou learn of the rivalry between Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson and how John uincy Adams who while sympathetic to the Indians whom he entertained in his home did not help them and John Marshall who stepped out of his role to advise You glimpse Layfayette and deToueville who tour the US at this time There is something of Davy Crockett and Jackson s war on the US bankThe end is not as good as the beginning Only a few pages cover the aftermath Inskeep goes from the flight of the Cherokee to the hyper development Disneyland being emblematic of Jacksonland the land essentially created by Jackson s tactics and policies He notes the multi multiculturalism and the use of Indian terms ie Arrowhead Motel I would have liked about contemporary life on the new Cherokee lands particularly Oklahoma not just that there is a casinoThe book raised my awareness on how these lands were taken from the Cherokee and Andrew Jackson s leadership role I have never understood the laurels given this president ie so many cities counties and schools named for him and despite his distrust of currency his picture on the 20 bill Now I understand it even less

Jacksonland review ´ 103 Ultivating farms publishing a newspaper in their own language and sending children to school Ross championed the tribes’ cause all the way to the Supreme Court He gained allies like Senator Henry Clay Chief Justice John Marshall and even Davy Crockett In a fight that seems at once distant and familiar Ross and his allies made their case in the media committed civil disobedience and benefited from the first mass political action by American women Their struggle contained ominous overtures of later events like the Civil War and set the pattern for modern day politics At stake in this struggle was the land of the Five Civilized Tribes In shocking detail Jacksonland reveals how Jackson as a general extracted immense wealth from his own armies’ conuest of native lands Later as president Jackson set in motion the seizure of tens of millions of acres “Jacksonland” in today’s Deep South  Jacks. It s a fascinating history I still can t see Jackson as anything other than a complete ass
