2 x 60'
Narrated by James Earl Jones, "Trail of Tears: Cherokee Legacy" explores one of the great historical tragedies of America's aboriginal people. In 1830, eager to gain access to lands inhabited by Native Americans, President Andrew Jackson enacted the Indian Removal Act which forced the Cherokee Nation to leave their homeland and relocate into unchartered territory. Many of these forced settlers suffered from exposure, disease and starvation during the relocation. Nearly one quarter of the Cherokee Nation died along the way. Available in HD.
