Additional Details

In this important case, Marshall's Supreme Court ruled that the Cherokee nation deserved federal protection against state impositions. Georgia, with the support of President Andrew Jackson, famously ignored the court ruling. Six years later, the Cherokees were expelled from their Georgia territory in the Trail of Tears.
