Daryl Black, Director of the Chattanooga History Center, talked about the Trail of Tears via two of its important locations. He spoke about Ross' Landing, a trading post along the Tennessee River, and a piece of the Federal Road where archaeologists believe the Cherokee people would have walked. In 1838, the United States government forcibly removed more than 16,000 Cherokee people from their homelands in Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, and Georgia, and sent them to “Indian Territory,” which would eventually become Oklahoma. Hundreds of Cherokee died during their trip west, and thousands more perished from the consequences of relocation. 

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Chattanooga, Tennessee, from December 15-19 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
