Trail of Tears

Events in Georgia

The trail of tears consists of cherokees, creeks and other indian tribes having to leave their homes and onto a new life.They were forced to leave so that the settlers could have more land. The tribes got kicked out their homes and if they tried to resist they would shoot them. Many families died on their way because, of hungry,diseases and from the cold. Their walk to the west was long and hard.
As they walked many died due to starvation and more. Especially the little kids because they didn't have the proper treatment or tools. The tribes had many problems through out their walk.
