Stand Watie and the First Cherokee

By Carolyn Bartels- Stand Watie was the last holdout in the Confederate surrender, He and his men fought all four years, always with the promise of weapons. The Confederacy wanted their support, but sort of "didn’t get around" to giving them arms, clothing or feeding them. A valiant struggle of a proud man.
