This is the newest Volume in the series, published October, 2019. Volume 9, begins in the time of August, 1830, as Georgia orders all white men in the Cherokee Nation to take an oath of allegiance to the state’s laws or leave the country. “This leads to a year of upheaval, as Georgia Guards sweep the land of white laborers, artisans and especially as Br. Gottlieb Byhan reports, the “Yankee Missionaries” of the American Board in Boston“. This led to the jailing of missionary, Samuel Worcester. The Moravian mission station, Oochgeelogy, near New Echota is lost to “renters”. On New Year’s Day,1833,the Moravian mission of Springplace, is overrun by whites who have “won” it through Georgia’s land lottery in the Cherokee Nation.With this loss, the Moravian’s are forced to move to Tennessee. This book series uses original diaries, minutes, reports, correspondence in Moravian Archives in N.C. to provide a first-hand account of daily life among the Cherokees through the nineteenth century.
