'I send on a little Indian boy': Andrew Jackson's history of taking Indian children

 

A depiction of a Creek baby, named Lincoyer here, and his dead mother is seen in A Pictorial History of Andrew Jackson, a biography published in 1860 by John Frost.

Add this to the genocidal legacy of Andrew Jackson, America's seventh president: taking Indian children from their communities.

According to "Quick Facts" by the National Park Service, Jackson sent at least three Indian children to his home and plantation in present-day Tennessee. All hailed from the historic Creek Nation, the tribe forced out of its homelands by conflict with the United South and, eventually, by the Indian Removal Act.
