I learned early about the Trail of Tears, from Jims dad. It was the point of
view you didn't get to often from TV at the time. I asked lots of questions. The
main thing I remember is saying that if I was on the trail I probably have died.
That's something a 9 year old don't forget.

Your Right. Even if they are arrow heads in unplowed ground. They may be buried
very deep. By creeks is the best place to look to today. Because floods may bury
and then unbury them.
I thought of making them for real. It is a skill. I've seen it done on TV.
Making them in POV was a lot easier.
