In order to solve a History Mystery you will need to have a Forensic Report, a Mystery File, a pen/pencil, and a open mind. Before you begin, let’s take a moment to review all the sections of the Forensic Report so that you are familiar with all the areas of the file and what you need to do. Keep in mind that as you review the items in the file, you are acting as if you are a Criminalist responsible for gathering, analyzing, and interpreting forensic evidence. These actions are key to helping you solve the historical mystery presented in class. Good Luck!
• As you view the items in each of the three areas (Crime Scene, Coroner’s Report, and Detective’s Research) take notes and fill in each of the areas on the Forensic Report. • Pay close attention to which office is reporting information and match the photos on your file with the photo on your report when you are writing in your information. • For example, if you see the symbol for the Crime Scene office on the top of the file page, you may use that information to answer the questions about the Crime Scene in your Forensics Report.
• If you are looking at notes and photos about the Crime Scene, they will be marked with a photo of caution tape. • Fill in your report sheet for this section by writing in notes about all the objects, people, and location details that you see.
• If you are looking at documents and photos with specific information about the victim’s body, then these are part of the Coroner’s Report and they will be marked with a photo of a coroner writing a report. • Fill in your report sheet for this section by writing in specific information about each recovered body. Note the person’s name, gender, age and injury information.
• And if you are looking at notes, documents, and/or images from the Detective’s Research they will be marked with a photo of an investigator’s badge. • Fill in your report sheet for this section by writing down any and all information that you feel may be useful to you later when you fill out Stage 4.
• Once you have filled in Stages 1– 3 you then use this information to come up with a theory of what event you think took place and why. • Read through carefully and answer each question in Stage 4: Forensic Analysis.
• Once you have completed reviewing the entire file and have filled out all of the sections of the Forensics Report, you may then turn in your report to your teacher. • The first student (or team) who is the most accurate with their analysis for this History Mystery will become the “Criminalist of the Month” and receive a name plate on the class plaque. • Finally, once the entire class has turned in their reports, you will read a Mystery Solved: Press Release that will tell you the background behind the case you just finished reviewing.
Another Native American Tribe living in the southeast were the Creeks. They were known rivals to the Cherokees and had several battles including the Red Stick War.

Intosh signed The Treaty of Indian Springs selling the remainder of Creek land in Georgia without the tribes’ consent for $200 k. The U. S. government gave the use of this land to the state of Georgia. Creeks who disagreed with this treaty sent a rival chief to execute Mc. Intosh by shooting and stabbing him repeatedly.
They had a written language unlike other Native American nations. They also had a newspaper called the Cherokee Phoenix, as well as a constitution. Some even adopted slavery.
White settlers quickly moved to take Cherokee land in Georgia when gold was discovered in Dahlonega in 1828. The state gave them permission even though it violated U. S. law. Andrew Jackson fought with the Cherokees against the Creeks in the Red Stick War (1813)and defeated them at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Despite their history, during his presidency, Jackson pushed for the passage of the Indian Removal Act in 1830. All Native Americans would be forced to move to Indian Territory in the west, now present day Oklahoma.
