Something struck a nerve when I read him name.
I can see why - I think Adams though, was sympathetic to the Indian cause but lost initiative when Governor Troup called out the state militia, preparing for Civil War. Adams, I believe, was one of the few that allowed annulment of a ratified treaty by negotiating with The Creek National Council, but by this time, Troup and his lot began forcibly removing Indians from their land.

In reference to “Jackass” Jackson, the founder of the DNC’s logo, Adams was displeased with the way the Indians were being treated and had this to say: it was "an eternal disgrace upon the country"

I’m not up on American Indian history as much as I should be, but I know this for sure, Adams knew Islam and he certainly knew “Islamic Jihad”

WD Sir, thanks for the quotes.
