Cherokees and Missionaries, 1789-1839.
by McLoughlin, William G.
Yale University Press,
xiii, 375pp. Some damp staining to the dust jacket and short tears, book near fine. In 1789 George Washington's administration announced that American Indians would receive equal citizenship as soon as they were "civilized and Christianized." This describes the role various denominations played in the acculturation of Cherokees, and their disillusionment when America abandoned the experiment. Apparently scarce in hard cover.
