Winfield Scott

Winfield Scott was born June 13, 1786 in Dinwiddle Country, VA. Winfield studied law in college, but later left it behind to serve in the army. In the war of 1812 he was promoted to lieutenant colonel which led him to be a great major general in the 19th century.

On October 11, 1812 Winfield was captured at Queenston Height and was released. Also in 1838 Scott led a group of 7,000 men that helped force the Cherokee Indians from their land in Georgia. That was later known as the Trail Of Tears. ABout 4,000 of the 15,000 Cherokees died from lack of food and no protection from the cold. That made Winfield's career rise.
