This is not the best written or most fascinating book, but it is a well researched book and a worthy investment of time. The governmental partisanship & trashing of the constitution in the early 19th century helps me understand similar nonsense today. The tragedy of the Creeks, Seminoles and Cherokees is unbelievable.
