Unhelpful Source – I found this on the national archives site. It is a record of the arrivals of various vessels into a number of different ports. The problem is that the only info provided is the date of arrival, name of the vessel, and the port it embarked from, not a whole lot of interesting things here. http://www.archives.gov/research/microfilm/m1842.pdf

Useful Source – This is a speech given by Henry Clay in which he addressed the U.S. Senate concerning the removal of the Cherokees from the native lands by the United States government. It provides a basis for an argument that there were at least some prominent figures in the government that thought that maybe it wasn’t such a good thing to kick people off their land. I found it using Academic Search Complete so you probably will need to log-in to view this. http://web.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.umw.edu:2048/ehost/detail?vid=4&hid=109&sid=a3655b73-715c-4c7a-a116-31fb1def25d7%40sessionmgr104&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWhvc3QtbGl2ZQ%3d%3d#db=a9h&AN=21212288
