The Cherokee “Trail of Tears,” 1838-1839

The Cherokee “Trail of Tears,” 1838-1839 : “This site explores the effects of the 1830 Indian Removal Act and the 1838 Treaty of New Echola that forcibly evicted Cherokees from their homes to unsettled lands west of the Mississippi. This forced march caused the death of over 4,000 people, approximately one-fifth of the Cherokee Nation. Includes statistics, narratives of participants, maps of the various routes, a timeline, and information about parks and historical sites.” (Annotation from Librarian’s Index to the Internet)
