The History of the Butterfly, Part 121: Successful Indian Removal

On September 17, 1836 there was a report about the successful removal of Creek Indians from their homes in Alabama to their new homes in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma). 

Success is assured if you set the bar low enough.

According to Wikipedia, approximately 19,600 Creek Indians were removed and about 3,500 died from disease as a result of the removal process.
