This Day in Georgia History

March 14, 1835

Treaty of Washington Signed

A segment of the Cherokee Indians led by John Ridge signed the Treaty of Washington with U.S. commissioners in Washington, D.C. The treaty ceded all remaining Cherokee lands in Georgia to the U.S. However, because of heavy opposition by other Cherokees, the U.S. Senate did not ratify the treaty.
