Trail Of Tears National Historic Trail

In 1838, over 16,000 people of the Cherokee Nation were forced by the US Government to leave their ancestral homes in Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and Tennesee. They resettled in what is known today as Oklahoma. 

This march moved people over 1,000 miles in eight states. Since it took place over the winter, the conditions were terrible. In addition, the majority of those who were required to relocate were not adequately supplied with the food or goods to make it through the snowy conditions.
