"The two-volume manuscript of this work was completed in 1852, although publication was not undertaken until 1907, with the actual printing being done at the press of the Savannah Morning News... [Lumpkin] was a Congressman from Georgia (1827-1831), governor of Georgia (1831-1835), and in 1835 was appointed by President Andrew Jackson the first United State Commissioner under the Cherokee Treaty.
