New Documentary: Trail of Tears National Historic Trail
The National Park Service is proud to share Trail of Tears, produced in collaboration with the Cherokee Nation.
Trail of Tears exposes one of the darkest chapters in American history: the forced removal of the Cherokee Indians from the southeast United States to a new home in the West, and the Cherokee people's determined struggle to maintain their cultural identity.
Stories of hardship, endurance, love, and loss come alive as a Cherokee grandfather endures the Removal experience with his granddaughter. Filmed on historic ground, Trail of Tears depicts the homeland that the Cherokee lost, the trail they followed, and the modern Cherokee people of today.
The national Park Service and the Cherokee Nation invite you to experience history and learn more about this story by visiting the sites on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. For more information please log on to nps.gov/trte (23 minutes)
