It was “dubbed” the Trail of Tears due to the forced “relocation” of Native Americans during the Indian Removal Act of 1830. This act led to the removal of the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Seminole, and Muscogee Creek from their homelands, to the barren wastelands the US government decided to put them on, to forget about them. All so they could open up the land for the use of the incoming settlers. The removal of the Cherokee has also been called the Death March, seeing as 4,000 of the 15,000 died.
If you can possibly be so ignorant as to try and twist these events to suit your agenda, then I truly do pity you. I will even give you a star to further showcase your ignorance.
that was actually the name Native Americans gave to that particular time . if i remember correctly as many as 4000 of them actually died in such forced migration . in other words they did not wanted to migrate and the name has nothing to do with atheists .
Heh, now the entire Nez Perce people are “atheist bloggers”.
That name came along long before blogging and has nothing to do with atheism. It’s called the trial of tears because of the hardship and death that resulted from that forced move.
“Trail of Tears” has been a term long before the internet was even invented
Because they were displaced from their ancestral homeland and forced to undergo a long journey by foot to a crappy land and many died along the way.
Because we were forced from the only place we knew as home, and many a life was sadly wasted in the process.
It’s been called that a long time. Why don’t you read the history and find out.
This is a secret known only to those who know how to read.
It kind of worked out that way.
Have a nice day.
