Hello Bill, Your question must be more specific as to the type and model of the Remington in question. ie pistol, rifle, or shotgun? which model? Then the condition, and even the finish, or how much of it is left will have a bearing on the value. The prime value will be the firearm itself. The fact that it was taken on the Trail of Tears will add a few dollars to the value, but only if such use can be documented. The best place to get the value on any Remington is the Remington Society of America web site. www.remingtonsociety.com They have folks who specialize in all of the different types and models that Remington made. Good luck in your search. Dan P. If you are speaking of the trail of tears tribute rifle, I have seen them anywhere from 400.00 to 900.

There were 17,000 Cherokee plus, 2,000 Black slaves they owned that marched on the Trail of Tears. The estimated deaths on the trail run from a low of around 500 and a high of around 8,000. There isn't a separate breakdown for the slaves that I have found. Actually the answer is none. The "Trail of Tears" was less than one years time 1838-9. The actual forced removal after the "round up" of Cherokee remaining in the So. East did not include any slaves. By all accounts everything of any value was taken from the Cherokee before. They were not allowed to take anything when they were forced out of their homes at gun point. Then locked up in stockades as prisoners before being marched 2,000 miles to Indian Territory. As the Cherokee were marched out of their homes the whites were walking in the back door & stealing/claiming anything of value, possessions, livestock & slaves included. Or were "claimed" for often fraudulent "debts" from the Cherokee. Georgia had already carried out a lottery for the Cherokee's land & "improvements". So anything there was up for grabs. The Gov. did not even allow a payment for soap to be used on the way. Slaves were "property" & as such were not allowed for by the Gov. The transport of "personal property" (slaves) would not be payed for. To be sure yes the Cherokee did own slaves. However most were "mixedbloods" like Major Ridge & the others of the "treaty party" who signed the illegal "treaty of 1835". They were rich in their own right & moved to Indian territory at their own expense before the "forced removal" (Trail where they cried) "Trail of Tears". Many Cherokee had moved West from right after the Revolutionary War & formed what was called the "western" or "Old Settlers" prior to 1838.
