Re: Cherokee freedmen lawsuit WON
In Response To: Cherokee freedmen lawsuit WON ()
I had no more to say since the explanation from Brad Littlejohn regarding the lawsuit. He was very helpful in explaining about the other four tribes and the 1866 treaty.
I do thank you Marilyn for letting me know that: "Although I am the President of the Descendants of Freedmen of the Five Tribes Association, the organization is not a party to the lawsuit. No lawsuit could have been won by trying to sue for the rights of freedmen of several tribes in one lawsuit."
You went into great detail to give me your explanation and although long, it is appreciated. Thanks again.
I am happy that the Cherokee freedmen descendants can now apply for citizenship.
