"In 1818 Galagina (later called Boudinot), along with two other Cherokees from Georgia, was sent to be educated in the Foreign Mission School. There he took the name Elias Boudinot, after the school's famous benefactor. Returning to New Echota, the Cherokee Nation capital in Georgia, Boudinot was assisted by Samuel Worcester, a medical missionary, in compiling the first hymnal to be printed in the new Cherokee syllabary of Sequoyah" - Siebert sale. Cherokee leaders Boudinot, John Ridge, and Major Ridge were all assassinated by members of the anti- removal Ross Party in 1839.
