While reading some other blogs today, I found a great story I think everyone who reads and enjoys this blog should read. Not only does it have the great term "value added history" in it, it also explains how oral stories and legends can be far from the truth when it comes to Cherokees and their history. It also shows how much information is actually available, even on the Cherokees before removal. People rarely believe me when I say there are oodles of records on the Cherokees but I think you will see in the story, it's true. An awful lot of info is out there. You just have to know where to look. So, please take a moment to go read "Chief Soap":Fact vs. Fiction at The Trail of the Trail. I promise you, this is worth a read!
Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
