Collection Description

Historical Note

"George Michael Troup (1780-1856) served as a state representative, U.S. congressman, U.S. senator, and Georgia governor during the course of a lifelong political career. His two terms as Georgia's thirtieth governor (1823-27) were marked by his successful efforts to ensure the removal of the Creek Indians from the state. During the ensuing negotiations with the federal government over the Creek removal, Troup was a staunch advocate for state's rights. A Democratic Republican and later a Jacksonian, Troup was known for recalcitrance and a willingness to spite the federal government when he disagreed with its policies."
