The faction of the Cherokee Nation that threw its lot in with the South also issued a declaration of causes.  An excerpt:

“The Cherokee people had its origin in the South; its institutions are similar to those of the Southern States, and their interests identical with theirs…Whatever causes the Cherokee people may have had in the past, to complain of some of the Southern States, they cannot but feel that their interests and their destiny are inseparably connected with those of the South. The war now raging is a war of Northern cupidity and fanaticism against the institution of African servitude.”


What do you find convincing about SC's reasoning?
