    The Legal Ideology of Removal
    The Legal Ideology of Removal The Southern Judiciary and the Sovereignty of Native American Nations by Tim Alan Garrison. This study is the first to show how state courts enabled the mass expulsion of Native Americans from their southern homelands in the 1830s. Our understanding of that infamous period, argues Tim Garrison, is too often molded around the towering personalities of the Indian removal debate, including President Andrew Jackson, Cherokee leader John Ross, and US Supreme Court Justice John Marshall. This common view minimizes the impact on Indian sovereignty of some little known legal cases at the state level. University of Georgia Press, 2002. Hardcover, 331 pp.
