1866 Treaty

Please read the treaty of 1866 for yourselves. Don't be swayed one way or the other by possibly uninformed or misinformed people. This is a very emotional issue so please read it carefully more than one time. There are many sites that include it. I'm not very computer litterate or I'd post a link. But if you google or other search "Cherokee treaty of 1866" it should come up. I would submit that no where in the treaty do the words Citizin ir citizeship apear in reguards to "freedmen". It guarantees "rights" in the courts etc (which is more than people of collor were guaranteed in Southern states at the time)wittnes the "Jim Crow" laws. Thank you
