John G. Burnett, "The Cherokee Removal Through the Eyes of a Private Soldier" (December 11,1890). In Journal of Cherokee Studies, vol. 3, no. 3 (1978), pp. 50-55- Special issue: The Trail of Tears: Primary Documents of the Cherokee Removal.

In May 1838, federal militias started to round up Cherokees and move them into stockades in several southern states. They were then forced to march one thousand miles westward. Thousands of Cherokees died as a result of the removal. The journey became known as "The Trail of Tears" or "The Trail Where They Cried." Fifty years later, in 1890, Private John Burnett, who served in the mounted infantry; told his children his memories of the Trail of Tears1, which he described as the "execution of the most brutal order in the History of American Warfare."
