E112 Major Ridge and the Cherokee

with Heather Shores

In this episode, Glen talks with Heather Shores, Executive Director of the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home to learn about one of the most important, and most undeservedly maligned Cherokee in history, Major Ridge.  Warrior, businessman, diplomat, and Councilman, Ridge was at the center of tribal life and politics for decades and played a leading role in the Treaty of New Echota... a role that led to his assassination.
