The Trail of Tears

The Trail of Tears

This piece of art relates to lecture because it depicts the Trail of Tears and Indian Removal in the nineteenth century. After Andrew Jackson’s administration passed the Indian Removal Act, thousands of Indian families were obliged to move west, what is now known as Oklahoma territory. Death took a toll as many suffered from starvation, illness/disease and fatigue.
