1798 saw the treaty of Tellico between the United States and the Cherokee nation during President John Adams’ administration. The treaty, in order to bring peace between the Cherokee and American settlers, recognized Cherokee land rights in exchange for the ceding of some of the lands that they claimed. This 1798 cent recalls a short lasting peace between the US and one of the largest tribes in North America.
