General John Ellis Wool was one of the few professional soldiers in the United States Army at the time of the removal of the Cherokee from the Smokey Mountains to the lands in Oklahoma and Arkansas. His task was to round up the Cherokee in western North Carolina into Fort Butler which is in Murphy, NC and get them ready for the trek west. These records contain the rations listing for those “...poor and destitute...”. The original of these and other records are found in the New York State Archives collection of General Wool’s papers.
