    9 - D

    10 - D

    11 - B

    12 - I guess that it is B, but claiming that the Cherokees were the only tribe on that death march is idiotic. All of the five tribes were forcibly removed. My ancestors were marched at gunpoint on the Trail of Tears, and they were Creek.

    13 - None of the above. The movements did not start until after the above Supreme Court ruling. The Choctaw were moved in 1831, Seminoles in 1832, Creeks in 1834, Chickasaw in 1837 and finally the Cherokee in 1838. Whomever wrote these questions is an idiot.

    The united states did not create the Versailles Treaty, the allied leaders on the finish of WWI permitted Germany's stop hearth contract on the concepts of Wilson's 14 features. The allied leaders then duplicitously modified the phrases to ones that punished Germany, the only part of Wilson's 14 facets that was once left used to be the imbecilic and inept League of countries. The USA Senate didn't ratify the Versailles treaty(now not for worry of global entanglements, however since we didn't wish to cede vigor to a further paperwork), seeing that Wilson refused to take delivery of the inn reservations, which would have protected American sovereignty.
