Trail of Tears

Record #:
Dean recounts the removal of the Cherokee Indians from their homelands in western North Carolina and other states, which took place between October 1838 and March 1839. Many white settlers sought to prevent the removal, but ultimately, the demand for new settlement lands and the discovery of gold on Cherokee land overwhelmed their protests. Thousands of Cherokees died on the winter march to Oklahoma.
