Daily Thoughts 04/07/2014

La Roche Guyon, Theodore Robinson, circa 1891
Daily Thoughts 04/07/2014

I checked the Twitter and Facebook this morning for the library.

I finished reading The Heathen School A Story of Hope and Betrayal In the Age of the Early Republic by John Demos. The school gets disbanded after the two Cherokee marriages.  However, the story does not end with the closure of the missionary school.  The marriages are to John Ridge and Elias Boudinot.  John Ridge and Elias Boudinot are known for their signing of the Native American removal treaty which led to the Cherokee "Trail of Trees."  The history is both fascinating and deeply tragic.
