Georgia State Symbols--Stamps of Jimmy Carter, Cherokee Rose, Brown Thrasher, Live Oak Tree, Georgia flag
When the Trail of Tears started in 1838, the mothers of the Cherokee were grieving and crying so much, they were unable to help their children survive the journey. The elders prayed for a sign that would lift the mother’s spirits to give them strength. The next day a beautiful rose began to grow where each of the mother’s tears fell.
