1830 Memorial of A Deputation of The Creek Nation - Alabama - Land Encroachment


The entire title of this rare government pamphlet is:

MEMORIAL OF A DEPUTATION FROM THE CREEK NATION OF INDIANS, complaining that certain acts of the State of Alabama are in violation of the acts and ammunities guaranteed to their nation by treaty stipulations, with the United States, and praying relief. February 9, 1830.

This is a 'memorial' from the Creek Nation to the federal government about the continual white encroachment on Creek land in the state of Alabama. Those members of the Creek Nation who had not 'emigrated' to the reservations on Oklahoma as of early 1830 were suffering as a result of this encroachment and a number of prominent chiefs traveled to Washington to negotiate an agreement that they hoped would salvage the Creek Nation in Alabama. The names of the chiefs are listed at the end of the memorial.

This is an original and uncut document and was only given to Congressmen, Senators, and their aides.
