Map of Indian Territory, 1836

2.7 An 1836 map showing the Indian Territory set aside for removal of eastern tribes to the West, with their designated reservations marked. Aside from the Seminoles of Florida, who warred against removal into the 1840's, the Cherokee were the last eastern tribe forced into the West, traveling there along the Trail of Tears in 1838.
