Troops to Protect White Settlers, 1837

From The Adams Sentinel
Gettysburg, Pa.
Sept. 18, 1837

It is stated in the Georgia Federal Union that as a matter of precaution the Governor of that State has determined to organize a sufficient number of volunteers in Cherokee circuit, for the protection of the people of that part of Georgia against any depredations or hostilities that the Cherokee and Creek Indians in that section may be disposed to commit on unoffending and peaceful citizens. It is apprehended that the removal of those Indians will not be effected without bloodshed, unless a sufficient military force is organized to oversee them.
