Visit Tahlequah, OK (near Muskogee) and you will learn much about the suffering caused by the trail of tears. Also you will meet a great number of very fine people called Cherokees.

I had no idea that so many peoples were here before Europe "discovered" them. 100 million people. I find it incredible that there were so many here already and that either accidentally or on purpose, almost all were wiped out by the interaction. Makes me wonder what will happen when we get visited by outer space aliens. They will of course know about germs and what they would need to do to protect the planet's 7 billion, but would they even care.

Hope that helps explain "the point". Happy trails.

Didn't clear anything up for me because factual information was lacking.

It DID clear up information about YOU!

If Columbus discovered America why is the land named for Amerigo Vespucci?
Why do we celebrate Columbus Day in the United States (of North America)? To the best of our knowledge, Columbus never set foot in or even sailed along coast of present day United States or North America. He may have done some camping, but it wasn't here.
