Unworthy Republic by Claudio Saunt

As an eternal learner, I am constantly reading. I invite you each month to follow along with what I'm currently reading or check back periodically for hand-picked selections of my favorites. Here's what I'm reading this month:

On My Desk

  • Unworthy Republic by Claudio Saunt
    • Unworthy Republic is a searing and sobering account of Indian Removal in the 19th century. It is a dark chapter in our history in which the federal government engaged in the ethnic cleansing of Native Americans from large parts of the country east of the Mississippi. My great great grandfather was one of the thousands who traveled the infamous “Trail of Tears” from his ancestral home in Mississippi to what became Oklahoma. As a child my, family taught me to never forget what he endured. -TC
