The Cherokee were proud, beautiful people, once warriors and also farmers they lived and loved the Carolinas on the eastern seaboard and inland. With the expansion of white settlers Jackson ordered them moved more then 800 miles in the coldest winter on record. Men, women, and children were marched at gun point in what became known as The Trail of Tears. Most Cherokee now live in Oklahoma.
