Rediscovering the Trail of Tears in Missouri

June 8 @ 5:00 am 7:00 pm

In 1838 Cherokee people were forcibly taken from their homes, forced to walk more than a thousand miles, and removed to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. More than 4,000 died and many are buried in unmarked graves along “The Trail Where They Cried.”
Come Join us Thursday, June 8th. 2023, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.at Wildwood Springs Lodge, 125 Grand Dr, Steelville, MO 65565. The Meeting is FREE and open to the public.

Dr. William Ambrose and Chris Dunn will retrace the trail that leads through Steelville. During the removal at least 10 of the groups camped at what is now the city park in Steelville Missouri. What brought them here? What was their route through Missouri? What did they experience on the trail?
