Historian Claudio Saunt joins the program for the hour to discuss the mass expulsion of American Indians from the southern US, beginning in 1830: an event that would later be remembered as the "Trail of Tears."

Professor Saunt's 2020 book "Unworthy Republic," examines this episode in history, including the political manuvering by President Andrew Jackson to push the Indian Removal Act through Congress.
