As a representative of the Cherokee culture, Junaluska was a hero and a warrior. In 1814 he was said to have saved Andrew Jackson from the Creek Indians in the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Ironically, Jackson was the same president who demanded the Cherokee removal to Oklahoma. The beginning of the Cherokee Trail of Tears is here as well as Junaluska's grave. Junaluska tried every appeal to keep his people in their homeland, but to no avail. Junaluska returned to the land many years later. He was buried in Robbinsville where the memorial now stands. A museum dedicated to the Cherokee culture can also be found in this area. It includes artifacts, artwork, and tools of the Cherokee people.
