1838 · Orders No. 25 Removes Cherokees

Age 1

A small group of Cherokees from Georgia voluntarily migrated to the Indian Territory. The remaining Cherokees in Georgia resisted the mounting pressure to leave. In 1838, U.S. President Martin Van Buren ordered U.S. troops to remove the Cherokee Nation. The troops gathered the Cherokees and marched them and other Native Americans from North Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama along what is now known as “The Trail of Tears.” Approximately 5,000 Cherokees died on their way to Indian Territory.

Civil War History - Some 11,000 Georgians gave their lives in defense of their state a state that suffered immense destruction. But wars end brought about an even more dramatic figure to tell: 460,000 African-Americans were set free from the shackles of slavery to begin new lives as free people.

Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: occupational name for a weaver, early Middle English webbe, from Old English webba (a primary derivative of wefan ‘to weave’; compare Weaver 1). This word survived into Middle English long enough to give rise to the surname, but was already obsolescent as an agent noun; hence the secondary forms with the agent suffixes -er and -ster.2 Americanized form of various Ashkenazic Jewish cognates, including Weber and Weberman.
