More.. Gold Mining in and around Dahlonega Georgia

 Gold was mined by Cherokees and other Native Americans in the area before and after the Cherokee Removal of 1838-39. The Cherokee lands were defined by the treaty between the federal government and the Cherokee Nation in the Treaty of Washington (1819). The miners raised political pressure against the Cherokee because they wanted to get the gold. The federal government forced the Native Americans west of the Mississippi River to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears during Indian removal.
