Blog Post: The Trail of Tears by Charles River Editors.

Hello once again people who read this blog! So lately I've been reading a, ah, interesting book.. That book would be The Trail of Tears. If you don't know, this book is about the persecution of five different Indian tribes, but we're gonna focus on the Cherokee. So, on with the post!

One word to describe this book: Sad. That's actually a great word to describe it. I don't really have much to say about this book, mostly because it disgusts me, but I will say this.
As I hope most of you agree with, what we did to the Native Americans was little more then wrong and disgusting. We were limited to taking their land before the American Revolution, but when the Revolution ended and the war was won we went on a complete rampage over America, destroying, killing, and "moving" and Native American settlements in our path. The moving part would be okay, if half of the Natives hadn't died in the process. Why did they die? Because the soldiers escorting them didn't care at all about their safety. They completely ignored their symptoms of sickness, injury, and depression. It was horrible. These people called themselves Americans, yet they freely did this to people who already lived there because they didn't want to give up their ancestors land. It just disgusts me.

Like I said before, I really don't have much to say about this book. It disappoints me to see how our ancestors acted about such a thing, but then again. They did own slaves. Don't even get me started on that.
Well, that's basically my book report on The Trail of Tears. If you haven't read it, don't read it. It's plain out sad.
I'll see you all in the next blog post.
The End
