So sad and greedy!
yes and our great President Jackson enforced this This was their land and home..
Funny how history repeats itself. the USA as we now know it is being invaded in much the same was as it was almost 150 years ago
this is not correct .. The CHerokee did not travel by horse wagon nor in a wagon train.
they were forcibly removed from their home and beloved mountains sometimes routed out of their beds in the middle of the night.
