Revisiting Some Old Cherokee Tunnels

Revisiting Some Old Cherokee Tunnels

Hike with Brady Brandwood as he takes another trip up into the mountains of North Georgia to visit some very old tunnels likely dug by Cherokee Indians during the Georgia Gold Rush of 1828,… and which tunnels or gold mines were possibly part of the catalyst for the ‘Indian Removal Act’ and the Trail Of Tears. It’s a fun adventure, with peeks into some dark, forgotten places.

    The mouth of the third cave looks familiar to me. There are a set of caves similar to these in the hills above Dahlonega Ga.
    Are these the same caves??

    The Trail of Tears and the Indian Removal Act are blots on this nation’s history that should not be as ignored as they are.

    That looked like an exploratory tunnel.. you might check old maps or do a closer survey of the area and see if they put a mine in someplace close..

    The last cave/mine you entered looks a lot like the abandoned mines Iโ€™ve found in Dahlonega, Ga.. Great video, thanks for sharing.

    Hey Brady. You make such good videos. Many are made by amateurs and are hard to watch. Anyway I just got back from Cherokee Qualla boundary. Then watched every video on the Cherokee natives. They sure could use a good documentarian if you’re ever interested. I think about them and other natives a lot amidst all the black lives matter voices. Thanks for the video.

    That’s Awesome

    Ah yes, the spider crickets are a staple in the south eastern mines found in this area.

  17. TheHistoryOf Channel on August 18, 2022 at 9:34 am

    Where exactly was this area?

  18. Olรณrin on August 18, 2022 at 9:34 am

    I wonder if he found any fraggles in there.

  19. RockHunter Mark on August 18, 2022 at 9:39 am

    cool history thanks

    A Local story in my area was that some Oklahoma Cherokees would come and camp out in the woods behind our local dairy queen in the 60s and 70s and would eventually split up in all different ways. One story told by a local is that a small group of them asked for him to take them to a area called "Mable Hill" they would then pull out a Map on some old deer pelt and it led them to some buried gold, the man was even given some gold for his troubles

    Aaaahhhhh you couldnโ€™t pay me enough to crawl in those bug infested holes! I did enjoy watching as you crawled through though. ๐Ÿฅฐ

  25. Lady Spitfire on August 18, 2022 at 9:50 am

    are you in bartow co. by chance? have you been back

  26. Mellissa Dalby on August 18, 2022 at 9:51 am

    All due respect to "Old Hickory" the Trail of Tears was a humanitarian crime of epic proportions. The saddest thing about it is that was only ONE heinous act against the indigenous people. IT makes me feel ashamed to be counted among the oppressors.

  27. Maniac tha don on August 18, 2022 at 9:52 am

    hey im cherokee eastern band can you tell me where that is at i would love to go into one of them

    You’d never catch me going into caves without a guide and those are walk in ones. Ever see that film The Descent. That’s what this reminded me of without the hungry humanoid underground dwellers. Plus I’ve seen some documentaries on cave exploration and it just brought out my inner claustrophobia. I’ll watch and even then I get nervous.

    I love this video and itโ€™s so hard to find and video where you learn and you can watch it over and over again without getting bored and this is perfect I wish more saw this. I am also Learning about someone from Cherokee so thank you๐Ÿ˜
