Sunday, Sept 24, 3:00 pm - Mary Stockwell Presentation "The Other Trails Tears: The Removal of the Ohio Indians"

In the Museum community room. Presentation is free.

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was the culmination of the United States’ policy to force native populations to relocate west of the Mississippi River. The most well-known episode in the eviction of American Indians in the East was the notorious "Trail of Tears" along which Southeastern Indians were driven from their homes in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to reservations in present-day Oklahoma. But the struggle in the South was part of a wider story that reaches back across time to the closing months of the War of 1812, back through many states – most notably Ohio – and into the lives of so many tribes, including the Delaware, Seneca, Shawnee, Ottawa, and Wyandot (Huron). They, too, were forced to depart from their homes in the old Ohio Country to Kansas and Oklahoma.
