The title page and first page of hymns, "Cherokee Hymnbook," printed in Philadelphia, for the American Baptists Publication Society around 1820. The Cherokee were a highly organized society, and early developed their own alphabet. The Baptists used it to try to convert them to Christianity, but they themselves printed newspapers and attempted to organize to resist the Europeans. The Cherokee War of 1760-1761 ended with the defeat of the Cherokee, the setting up of a boundary between the areas in which whites could settle and areas reserved for the Cherokee, and the formal recognition by the tribes that the English were supreme.
