Knox, Washington, and most American policy makers of the time believed American Indians would be better off if they learned to farm like white Americans, adopted the values of private property ownership, and converted to Christianity. S. Congress appropriated funds to supply Native people with farming tools and provide them with instruction in agriculture and animal husbandry. S. Indian policy up until the time that Jackson assumed the presidency; abandoning a program so closely connected to Washington would have required an audacity that even a man as obstreperous as Jackson did not possess.

Consequently, in the antebellum era the southern states moved to expel free blacks and remove the Indian tribes from their borders (Garrison, 2002: 13–33; Horsman, 1981: 1–207). In fact, the roots of Jackson’s removal policy dated back to the founding of the United States and were a product of the young nation’s protracted struggle to determine how to deal with the Native population living within its claimed territory. Whatever part Jackson had in convincing the nation that removal was the panacea for the government’s Indian dilemma, he was clearly boxed in by the historical choices and parameters laid down by his predecessors in office.

And second, if there was a moral economy in place, when did it transform into a commercially oriented market economy? Historians James T. Lemon and Wilma A. Dunaway argue that the American frontier economy was capitalistic from the beginning of settlement. In Best Poor Man’s County: Early Southeastern Pennsylvania (1972), Lemon argues that early Pennsylvanians inhabited a “liberal” world in which individualism, market considerations, and material gains trumped public interests.
