The second sub-unit is focused on Native actions and reactions to American expansion by looking at two case studies: the Creek and Seminole nations. The time periods of the case studies do not overlap, so much as go in chronological order (the Creek War case study should be followed by the 2nd Seminole War case study). In each case study, students would use a map source and a primary source to compare/contrast how different leaders and nations resisted the U.S. policy of forced removal.
The third sub-unit is a look at the consequences of removal policy in the Southeast and how it transformed into the use of reservations. Students will also consider the extent to which promises have been kept (or not) and what responsibilities the American nation owes to the Native nations affected by removal and reservation policies.
