UH OH. Turns out Elizabeth Warren’s great-great-great grandpa helped round up Cherokees

But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

  • I would laugh at the sweet irony, but there is nothing funny when the trail of tears is involved.

      My reaction also ABC. The Trail of Tears is another shameful and tragic chapter in our country’s history that was perpetuated by the dims.

        100% RIGHT!

        1831 The SCOTUS sided with the Cherokee’s. Andrew Jackson said to hell with federal law and to hell with the Supreme Court and to hell with the Constitution.

        And rightful owners were run off of their land.

        Dems really don’t change do they. Oh yeah … this one’s half white.

        • I have a hard time with Adnrew Jackson. I like him for some things, but on this, this was just SO wrong and senseless. 🙁

      • I love reading history books. I have read different accounts of that whole journey and it breaks one’s heart to imagine what those folks went through.

    Warren is a piece of work who should pay the price for an epic fraud. Those of us with real Native American ancestry can prove it with more than just “lore”. Native American tribes have an oral history that goes back thousands of years. They can trace your heritage if you’re the real deal.

    Warren is a slimeball. But that appears to be her real heritage. So we should expect nothing less from the liar-candidate.

    Is this also a chapter of The Life of Julia? Under President Obama Warren doesn’t belong to a minority anymore…….and in the last chapter she gets fired…….by the President.

    With an ancestor like O. C. Sarah Smith, it seems reasonable for a brilliant Harvard law professor to assume that the initials “O. C.” stood for “Official Cherokee.” /sarc
