Our latest addition to the Talbot online bookstore (and available at the TL&M) is a new book by John Sedgwick published in April 2018. It is the story of the feud between two rival Cherokee chiefs -- Major Ridge and John Ross-- from the early years of the United States through the infamous Trail of Tears and into the Civil War. Their enmity would lead to war, forced removal from their homeland, and the devastation of a once-proud nation. At first, the two men are friends and allies who negotiate with almost every American president from George Washington through Abraham Lincoln. But as the threat to their land and their people increases, they break with each other on the subject of removal. The author has done extensive research on this often told story and presents fascinating material to support his research. This book is "Riveting, Engrossing, American Epic”. Cost is $30 and can be purchased here.
