The Trail of Tears

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 forced American Indians to leave their ancestral lands and travel over 1,000 miles on foot. Thousands died on the journey that would come to be known as the "Trail of Tears." Join John Bradshaw as he illuminates this tragic chapter in American history, and learn how a God familiar with suffering will one day wipe away all our tears.
