the anniversary of a mass exile.
One hundred years ago this week
? there is some question as to tne
exact date ? Federal soldiers march
ed oti Chcrokees living in the. nvoun
tains from Pennsylvania to Georgia
and Alabama and forcM them to migrate
In most oases, the red men were
headed into stockades and escorted
on the journey as prisoners.
An old Indian saw a soldier prod
his squaw with a bayonet because
she could "not walk fast enough, the
hiistory books say. He called for oth
er Indians to help him, and a group
attacked the - soldiers and esc/\ped,
leaving a dead guard In Its wake.
The group formed the nucleus of a
band led by Chief Utsala, which de
fied the exile order. Other escapers
joined the band, which grew Into 1,000
, tJeneral Winfield Scott finally agreed
to allow Utsala's band to .remain
on the land If tney would surrender
the men responsible for the
guard's death. Uteala agreed and the
offenders were put to ueath.
