HELPING YOU DISCOVER THE TRAIL OF TEARS
Look left, look right, look straight ahead - the land has a story to tell. Imagine more than 15,000 Cherokee people being forced to march across Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas. They walked hundreds of miles and were taken on wagons, steamboats, and flatboats to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) in 1838-1839. Their ordeal is one to remember, sense, and see as you travel the Southeast.
These tell-tale signs will help you find and explore the stories, routes, and sites on the Trail of Tears.
