At Fort Smith National Historic Site, you can walk three-quarters of a mile along the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail to the Trail of Tears Overlook. Here, more than 46,000 American Indians crossed the river into Oklahoma, completing their forced relocation from Georgia and Florida. Tens of thousands died en route.
