Addolorata Villa Presents: Trail of Tears (Harper College’s Lifelong Learning Program)
December 6, 2016 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
When Andrew Jackson was elected president in 1828, he was determined to end the land claims of all of the remaining Indian tribes east of the Mississippi River. The Cherokee stood against him, suing for their land rights in the Supreme Court. Joyce Haworth will explain the battle that followed and the removal of the tribes to Oklahoma, illustrating the weaknesses of the Constitutional system, the power of greed, and the suffering of a people.
