    Remembering The Removal by looking ahead


    It was 175 years ago when the last of more than 20,000 Cherokees were forced from our ancestral lands in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama to begin a 1,000-mile journey to Oklahoma in what is known “The Trail of Tears.” It was called that not just because of the suffering endured by our people, but because those witnesses to The Removal cried at the sight where as many as one in four died.
