What from their background, relationship to the Cherokees, and motivation for writing their accounts, would create their biases?

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was the result of the U.S. governments long-standing commitment to persuading Native Americans to move across the Mississippi River. The Cherokees were removed in 1838-1839 from Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina as part of the Trail of Tears. The majority of Cherokees, led by Chief John Ross, were vehemently opposed to moving, but Major Ridge, a prominent Cherokee Chief, along with his son, John Ridge, felt that such a move was inevitable and led the negotiation of the Treaty of New Echota with the U.S. government.

For two different viewpoints of the subject, read John Ridge on Cherokee Removal by John Ridge and Story of the Removal of the Cherokees by John G. Burnett. These two primary sources can be found below:
