Research Projects and Activities:
The chapter is involved with an ongoing archaeological study of the fort sites used during the Cherokee Removal, headed by Erin Andrews and funded through a National Park Service Cost Share grant.
One of the camp sites used during the round-up – Camp Cedar Town – is currently being nominated for certification as an official site on the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail. The chapter is also working with the NPS to develop wayside exhibits for the site. A sign committee has been established to place “Original Route” signs along the route of the Old Federal Road. An online database, called “TOTAbase,” has been established by the chapter to facilitate mapping and cooperative research and to better integrate historic trail resource preservation efforts. The chapter also recently started a daily blog at trailofthetrail.blogspot.com.
