Official Map and Guide
WALK IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS
The Official Map and Guide interprets the Trail of Tears events of 1838-1839, when the Cherokee Nation and four other southeastern tribes were removed from their homelands to Indian Territory (Oklahoma). Indian removal was an American act of opportunistic oppression and avarice. It is the story of tragedy and loss, but also of survival and remembering the past.
