Modern History of Tennessee
From 1776 until the mid-nineties of the 18th century in Tennessee (as well as in neighboring Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia), clashes and conflicts between European settlers and Indians (mainly the Cherokee people), known as the “Chickamoga Wars”, continued. Despite numerous treaties that left the Native Americans the right to live on their lands, the colonists constantly expanded the boundaries of the settled territories, gradually pushing the Indians further and further west. Only in 1794 did the Cherokee, recognizing the military superiority of the American army, cease resistance.
The Cherokee, Muscogee, Chickasaw, and Choctaw who lived in Tennessee were among the Five Civilized Tribes. They adopted Christianity, adopted many of the customs of their “pale-faced” neighbors, and created schools for their children. The Cherokee even had their own alphabet and published a newspaper. However, the desire to seize new territories from the residents of the states of the US South led to the adoption by the US Congress in 1830 of the “Indian Removal Act”. At the end of the thirties of the XIX century, the Indians were forcibly relocated to reservations in the territory of the modern state of Oklahoma. Thousands of them died on the long road west through Kentucky, Missouri and Arkansas, called the “Road of Tears” by the Indians.
In the early decades of Tennessee settlement, there were relatively few slaves in the state (about four thousand at the beginning of the 19th century), most of them worked on cattle farms in Central Tennessee, where natural conditions (very similar to the Bluegrass region in neighboring Kentucky) were perfect for raising large cattle and horses. With the development of West Tennessee, especially the fertile lands of the Mississippi Valley , excellent for growing cotton, the number of disenfranchised black workers also increased dramatically. Already in 1830, there were almost one hundred and fifty thousand slaves in the state, and by the beginning of the American Civil War, they made up a quarter of the population of Tennessee (more than 280,000 people).
