The Trail of Tears
Congress has designated a national historic trail to mark and commemorate
the removal routes taken by Cherokees who were forced from their homelands
in the 1800s. To assist with research and interpretation of the trail, the
National Park Service has entered a partnership with the National Trail of
Tears Association and several tribal nations. The Trail of Tears Association
consists of volunteer chapters chartered in each state the Cherokees passed
through on their 1836-38 forced emigration.
