The native peoples of the American South and West were often seen to be at odds with the westward push of American civilization. In 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed into power the Indian Removal Act, and subsequently created the Dawes List and the infamous Trail of Tears. These events had a profound effect on our culture and society. Join us as we take a look at this series of events and the effects they had on our shared American and Texas histories. Presentation times are 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM and the program will last approximately thirty-five to forty minutes. This program is open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult. Dress appropriately for the season as the presentation takes place in a period setting. Held at Washington on the Brazos SHS 12300 Park Rd. 12, Washington, TX 77880. Accessible for the mobility impaired. Program subject to cancellation.
