Historical Background

Tugaloo, Georgia was at a nexus of several other Indian trails which included the Coosa-Tugaloo Trail a pre-historic path that went toward Birmingham, Alabama. This trail and other trails in this part of the south were part The Old Cherokee Path which became the Great Valley Road and was to become one of the most significant settler migration routes in America. The Old Cherokee Path was not fully opened to European settlers until the Cherokee were forced out of South Carolina and part of Georgia in 1777 during the American Revolutionary War after the Cherokee sided with the British in that war.[1]
