Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears

Elizabeth Warren Ancestor Rounded Up Cherokees For Trail of Tears
After researching her story, it is obvious that her "family lore" is just fiction. As I pointed out in my article here on Sunday, no evidence supports this claim. O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford had no Cherokee heritage, was listed as "white" in the Census of 1860, and was most likely half Swedish and half English, Scottish, or German, or some combination thereof. (Note, the actual 1894 marriage license makes no claim of Cherokee ancestry  
But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.
Full disclosure: I am Cherokee. More than 1/8. Proven.

Liberals use minorities to further their own agenda until they're no longer needed, then they kick them to the curb and look for the next victim to use. This is just another example of a shameless academic elitist using the image of the Native-American to further her own career. You really think she gives a rats butt about any tribe in this country?
