Trail of Tears Historical Marker

THE TRAIL OF TEARS

 

"In the valley to the south, that part of the Cherokee Nation which took part in the enforced overland migration to Indian Territory rested for about three weeks in 1839. About 15,000 persons of various ages took part in the march. Several who died while here were buried in this area."

 

This historical marker is along US-70S, on the eastern edge of Woodbury, Tennessee.
