Hall Tales, 4: Native Americans

August 23, 2018

How did Hall County play into the forced removal of Native Americans from the Southeast? Why was Corn Tassel hanged after his return to Hall from the Cherokee Nation?

Listen to Hall Tales host Johnny Vardeman talk with Cherokee historian Lamar Sneed and Glen Kyle, director of the Northeast Georgia History Center, about Hall County’s history with Native Americans — a story of treaties forged and fought over, gold and the Trail of Tears.

Hall Tales is a podcast series produced by The Times that explores the history of Hall County from recent events to those beyond living memory. Episodes will be coming out twice a month until December, when the county will celebrate its 200th birthday.
