Anyone watching "America: Promised Land" ? (History Channel)

So far, they've very briefly noted the indigenous populations. But so far there is no mention of the forced migrations that moved them from their homes, nor any discussion of how they were otherwise "removed." Extraordinary omission, appalling.

1. Fortunately many tribal people have now written their own history

and you can find it in bookstores and libraries all over the place.

Trust me, you can't consider yourself historically literate until you do.

2. Indeed.

One more reason to cherish the years I lived in New Mexico!

5. May 28 is the anniversary of Jackson singning the Indian Removal Act

Jackson, the Proto-Trump.

6. One of my ancestors lost his seat in Congress because of opposing the Indian Removal Act

He was fighting Andrew Jackson, and lost. One of the last things he said in Congress: "You can all go to hell; I'm going to Texas". He stopped on the way to visit relatives in Altus, Arkansas, but didn't survive the trip to Texas.
You may have heard of him: Davy Crockett.
