Trails of Tears

In 1838 and 1839 as part of Andrew Jackson's Indian removal policy the Cherokee tribe was forced to give up their land east of the Mississippi River and to migrate to an area in Oklahoma. The Cherokee tribe reffered to the "Trail of Tears" as "Nunna Daul Isunyi".

The Cherokee tribe removal in 1838 was caused by the discovery of gold near Dahlonega, Georgia in 1829 resulting in the Georgia Gold Rush. The Cherokee tribe was divided into thirteen groups. The last of the tribe was led by John Ross who negotiated the tribes emigration deal with Van Buren . About 4,000 of the Cherokee died along the way.
