Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Frontierspeople began settling the land in the 18th and early 19th century. In 1830 President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act, beginning the process that eventually resulted in the forced removal of all Indian tribes east of the Mississippi River to what is now Oklahoma. Many of the Cherokee left, but some, led by renegade warrior Tsali, hid out in the area that is now the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Some of their descendants now live in the Qualla Boundary to the south of the park. Streams flow throughout much of the park. The Carlos Campbell Overlook is named for a Knoxville, Tennessee businessman who pushed for the establishment of the national park. It was also a site for filming of parts of Disney's hit 1950s TV series, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier. A 75th anniversary re-dedication ceremony was held on September 2, 2009.
