” Decoding the Keyes Map” Presentation and Round Table

On March 20 2018, Vogt-Dautzenlein presented recent research findings, conclusions, and theories related to the 1838 Trail of Tears Roundup routes traversing Cherokee, Bartow, and Gordon Counties, Georgia.

An incredible group of knowledgeable people, including historians, academics, archaeologists, researchers, field researchers, museum directors, authors, and Georgia Trail of Tears members were in attendance.

We want to thank you all for attending and sharing information that could lead to the confirmation of both Trail of Tears Roundup Routes emanating from Cherokee County.

A big “Thanks” goes out to the Cherokee County Historical Society and its Director, Stefanie Joyner, for use of the Rock Barn and all their support in this effort.
