The Indian Removal Act of 1830 brought more than 15,000 Cherokee through the WKMS service region.  Thursday at 7 p.m. the McCracken County Public Library presents the president of the Kentucky Trail of Tears Association, Alice Murphree of Hopkinsville, in observance of this year's 175th Anniversary of the Trail of Tears, part of the removal of native peoples from lands east of the Mississippi.  Ms. Murphree tells Kate Lochte more about the research she's done to certify sites on the Trail.
