Re: Sequoyah County Times Article on Freedmen

Lets bring clarity to another false statement;
"Freedmen were on the trail of tears", this an incorrect statement....
there may have been some Free people of color....but no Freedmen....
The statement should be "Cherokee slaves were also on the trail tears", these people would not received their freedom for another 30 or so years......
Also remember, there were many cases of slave family members being sold off just before the removal. Just imagine a Cherokee slave family of two parents and five children and the Cherokee slave owner sells two of the kids and also decides to sell grandma because she is to old to carry a pack on her back.....
Please lets put this in perspective.
