In the late 1830's, after many years of pressure from white settlers, 16,000 Cherokee Indians were moved by the US Army from the southwestern states to land west of the Mississippi River.
Various detachments followed different water trails (1,226 miles), and overland routes (826 miles) west to the Oklahoma territory. One of the land routes came through present-day Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Remember and commemorate the survival of the Cherokee people as they were forcefully removed form their homeland. Trail of Tears Patch 1838-1839 Patch measures 3 1/2''W x 2 1/2''H.
