Gen. Scott Addresses Cherokees, 1838
June 5, 1838
UNITED STATES AND THE CHEROKEES
Official. From THE GLOBE.
Major Gen. Scott, of the United States Army,
sends to the Cherokee People, remaining in
North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama, this address.
CHEROKEES: The President of the United States has sent me, with a powerful army to cause you, in obedience to the Treaty of 1835, to join that part of your people who are already established in prosperity on the other side of the Mississippi. Unhappily, the two years which were allowed for the purpose, you have suffered to pass away without following, and without making any preparation to follow; and nor, or by the time that this solemn address shall (illegible words) your distant settlements, the emigration must be commenced in haste, but, I hope, without disorder. I have no power, by granting a further delay, to correct the error that you have committed. The full moon of May is already on the wane, and, before another shall have passed away, every Cherokee man, woman and child in those States must be in motion to join their brethren in the far West.
