    6th Annual Trail of Tears Re-enactment Walk

    6th Annual Trail of Tears Re-enactment Walk

    On November 7, 2009 there will be a re-enactment Walk of the Trail of Tears in Lawrenceburg Tennessee on the Public Square gathering at 9:00 with the walk to start at 10:00. This is the 6th annual walk held in Lawrenceburg. This year the President has added the Bell and Benge's route to the Long Distance Trail with the National Park Service. It is open to the public and anyone can come and walk. We walk to honor All the Ancestors who were removed from their homelands in the Southeastern United States. There will be an Indian Social afterward at the David Crockett State Park (shelter 1) off highway 64 west of Lawrenceburg. We ask that you bring a covered dish or drink to share.

    There will also be a silent auction to help with the drums gas money. Donations are appreciated.

    This walk is to make people aware that one of the Trail of Tears routes did go through Lawrenceburg Tennessee in 1838 but a lot of the Tribes were removed from this area not just Cherokee. Please come out and help us honor those who lived here before us and those who have passed on. A good section of the Trail is intact inside of the Park. We are grateful that it has not been destroyed.

    Come out and walk with us and bring a dish and have lunch with us, there will be Cathy’s Frybread available at the meal. Our Drum is Southern Echo out of Crossville.

    This is put on by the Lawrence County Trail of Tears Committee. You walk at your own risk. We are not responsible for accidents.
