Photography - Franklin, TN
On March 17, 2002, my family and myself made a trip to Franklin, TN, which is a small, but historic city just south of Nashville. It was here that the important Civil War battle of Franklin was fought in 1865. As usual, I had my digital camera along and was able to take this pictures. Enjoy!
Marker reads: "Chickasaw Treaty Council - In the spring of 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, providing the President with the means to exchange the lands of the five civilized Indian nations of the Southeast for lands west of the Mississippi. On August 20, 1830 Andrew Jackson met in Franklin with the Chiefs of the Chickasaw to begin a series of treaties which removed the tribe to Oklahoma. "Sharpe Knife," as the chiefs called Jackson, was the only U.S. President ever to witness an Indian national cabinent."
