  • Cherokees traveilling the Trail of Tears

    In 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act which authorized the removal of native tribes living east of the Mississippi River. Many of the tribes had firm roots in their homes in the east and resisted the move West.  Some were removed by military force which resulted in tragic consequences.  This program explores the catastrophe of Indian removal.
