The Cherokee Trail of Tears started twenty miles from where I grew up. I never gave it much thought, at least until November 2020.
It was sad for me passing thru Oklahoma, home to 17 (I believe) different tribes of Native Americans, whose main livelihood now seems to be owning and running casinos. I too look forward to your research.
I’m looking forward to reading these posts. I appreciate your interest in and sense of responsibility for reporting these historical events (and for writing articulately & concisely about history I should have researched long ago).
Very interesting topic and I’m eager to read more. I explore cultural nuances in the workplace through my writing and this lens you are providing here has definitely piqued my internet. I reside in TN so I’m also considering following some of footsteps to these locations you visit.
