World War II deportations (4) - “СТАЛИНСКИЕ ДЕПОРТАЦИИ” (4)
Ethnic minorities in the “democratic” United States of America...
One episode among many:
“At the beginning of the 1830s, nearly 125,000 Native Americans lived on millions of acres of land in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and Florida–land their ancestors had occupied and cultivated for generations. By the end of the decade, very few natives remained anywhere in the southeastern United States. Working on behalf of white settlers who wanted to grow cotton on the Indians’ land, the federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. This difficult and sometimes deadly journey is known as the Trail of Tears.” (Trail of Tears - Native American History - HISTORY.com)( Collapse )
