‘Cherokee Trail Diaries’ authors to visit Talbot Library
COLCORD, Okla. – The Talbot Library and Museum in Colcord will host Jack and Pat Fletcher authors of the “Cherokee Trail Diaries: Volumes 1-3” from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on April 30.
The program will take place in the historic Springtown Schoolhouse on the museum property.
The Cherokee Trail was the name given to the two routes taken by Cherokees traveling west to the California gold fields in 1849 and 1850. The wagon train, consisting of people from the Cherokee Nation and northwest Arkansas, met at the Grand Saline Salt Works on the Grand River to start their journey.
The Fletchers will present information on the status of the Cherokee Trail, along with new trail evidence and the work of groups from Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming where the Cherokee Trail is designated a State Historic Trail.
