Lost Spirit, I was particularly interested in the part of the article relating to the "massacre" at Fort Dearborn. Looked up some history; This paragraph really grabbed my attention. Can you imagine that the US gov't ever abided by this "article"--NOT!
TREATY WITH THE WYANDOT, ETC., 1795.
If any citizen of the United States, or any other white person or persons, shall presume to settle upon the lands now relinquished by the United States, such citizen or other person shall be out of the protection of the United States; and the Indian tribe, on whose land the settlement shall be made, may drive off the settler, or punish him in such manner as they shall think fit; and because such settlements made without the consent of the United States, will be injurious to them as well as to the Indians, the United States shall be at liberty to break them up, and remove and punish the settlers as they shall think proper, and so effect that protection of the Indian lands herein before stipulated.
