This photo taken in North Carolina in 1888, shows a Cherokee cabin that is very representative of the homes in this region during the 19th century. The United States federal government forced about 16,000 Cherokee and hundreds of other Native Americans to abandon their land in NC, GA, Tenn, AL and move to OK in the late 1830's. Brett Riggs, an archaeologist at the University of NC, is uncovering the remains of farms and homes in the mountains of NC, that the Cherokee left behind.
