Talk On Major Ridge Offered Feb. 24

  • Friday, February 9, 2024

Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will present a special 30-minute ranger led talk about Major Ridge and his family during the era of Cherokee Removal on Saturday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m. This program will be conducted on Moccasin Bend, at 10 Hamm Road, Chattanooga, Tn. Please bring a folding chair and dress appropriately for weather conditions.

The story of the Ridges is one of many tragedies that took place during Cherokee Removal and one
that culminated in the highest prices paid for what they thought to be the best path for their people.
Major Ridge rose to prominence among the Cherokee in the early part of the 19th century and went
from being a mentor to John Ross to one of his most outspoken critics.
