Junaluska - A Chief Without A Tribe

Record #:
Provost recounts incidents in the life of the famous Cherokee chief, Junaluska. He and other Cherokees saved Andrew Jackson's life at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814; yet when Jackson was President, he ordered the removal of the Cherokees to the West in 1838. Junaluska later returned to North Carolina, a 'chief without a tribe,' and settled in Graham County, where he died in 1858. In 1910, a monument was erected there to his memory.
