This Day in Georgia History

May 26, 1838

Georgia Militia Began Rounding Up Cherokees

Gen. John Floyd and nine companies of the Georgia Militia crossed the Coosawattee River and began the roundup of Cherokee Indians in Georgia. Because U.S. troops from Florida had not yet arrived, Gen. Winfield Scott three days earlier had mustered the Georgia militiamen into federal service to begin the roundup.
