Road to Removal video finally out
The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation video Road to Removal: The Cherokees 1800-1840 is finally released. Gilles Carter mailed my copy to me with a lovely letter thanking me for my work. It was a fun time and working with professional film crews was a truly once in a life time experience.
The educational video was produced to be distributed in schools and libraries. It tells the story of the Cherokees and their removal from their ancestral home lands to the present day Oklahoma.
I grabbed a screen capture of some of my scenes. If you get an opportunity to check it out of a library near you I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did being in it. It's a history video so be prepared to learn something you didn't know before.
This was my 4th video and by far the best of the lot. Thank you goes out to my friend Whit Edwards who invited me to participate in this video.
