This is a paper that focuses on the historical complexity for the removal of Cheokee. The paper also focuses on analyzing two oust from two different posts.
The historical complexity for the removal of Cheokee
Discussion: Historical Complexity
Consider the following statement: “In preparing for the Cherokee removal, state and federal officials were motivated solely by desire to seize the natives’ land.” In your post, consider the following:
· Does this statement present the full picture? Revise this statement to present a more complex explanation of the motivations that drove state and federal officials (and the white citizens of Georgia) during the years immediately preceding the Cherokee removal. Explain the choices you made in your revision.
· Next, consider how you can take a similar approach to your own topic (Equal Rights Amendment in the United States) in order to more fully understand the historical complexity. What other viewpoints would you want to further explore in order to more fully understand your topic?
In response to your peers, share any preconceived notions you may have about their topic. (Not about the Native American removal). Lastly, consider how further exploration of the viewpoints around their topic would potentially change the lens through which they currently view the event.

Reflect the full picture as to why the government wanted to relocate the Cherokee. Yes there was dispute over the land. The land was great for producing cotton, but I also think another reason governing officials wanted to relocated the Cherokee tribe was for political control and power. Looking at this through a political lens the governing official wanted to ensure political control and power. Especially since the Cherokee pushed back with politically lobbying.
My topic is the Woman’s Suffrage Movement. Another approach I could take to further understand this topic is researching the opposing views. I was to find out that there was a large group of women who opposing the movement. They felt it did not benefit woman to be “entirely equal,” I think it would be beneficial to research this side of the movement. Also, how that impacted the delaying of the nineteenth amendment.
