I Googled the word trail and “Trail of Tears” came up as one of the search results.
Of course I had studied the subject in history class many years ago but did not remember that one of the displaced Native American peoples had been the Seminole of Florida.
Further I had not realized the role Black Seminoles played in shaping American history. Then I read the story of John Horse and his incredible journey to find place of peace and freedom for his people.
Perhaps this is a loose reference to the theme ‘trail’ for Illustration Friday but I got a bit obsessed by this story and wanted to illustrate and share it here. Click on the links to explore the trail of John Horse.
The above illustration is digital and was made in Photoshop.
Thanks for looking!
