If, for instance, your essay is just a narrative of what the Cherokee Trail of Tears was, then I would end it with brief summation pointing out that the Cherokee Trail of Tears was but one trail of tears many tribes had to endure. If your focus is on how it was an illegal removal, then you might summarize and point out how this deliberate disobeying of the Supreme Court, would not have been tolerated.
