Detachments

The first three detachments of Cherokee emigrations left by water in June, 1838. Twenty-eight hundred Cherokee were divided into three detachments, each accompanied by a military office, a corps of assistants, and two physicians. The first group with about 800 in the party departed June 6, with the other two detachments starting after the fifteenth of June. These three detachments traveled the water routes and are thought to have recorded a much higher rate of deaths and desertions
