During 1838 the remnants of the Cherokee Nation were rounded up by Federal Forces and the Georgia Militia and put into military stocks for the eventual removal to reservations in Indian Territory. On May 30th, seventy-nine Cherokee Indians were captured and guarded at Fort Hoskins under the command of Captain Thomas S. Jones. On June 9th 1838 it was reported that 122 captives had been sent directly to Ross Landing. In all, about 7000 U.S. Soldiers and Georgia Militia forced some 15,000 Cherokee Indians into stockades and held them for removal. It is believed that many Cherokees probably died in the stockades.
