Throughout the journey, there was terrible weather. This terrible weather included sleet, snow, and freezing temperatures. Along with the terrible weather, the Cherokees did not have a lot of supplies, such as food and shelter (Davidson).
The journey to the Indian territory had many deaths along the way. Fifteen thousand Cherokees started the trip, and four thousand died on the route. The route was described in Memoirs of Private John G. Burnet as, “The trail of the exiles was a trail of death” (Burnet). It was a terrible trip with many difficulties (Davidson).
Once the Cherokees were at the Indian Territory it was very difficult for them to get settled. After the movement population decreased and there were many struggles. These struggles still continue for Native Americans today (Davidson).
