New Gainesville Chautauqua: Cherokee Leader John Ross June 11

The Northeast Georgia History Center presents the first of a three-part New Gainesville Chautauqua series at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 11.

This year’s Chautauqua series explores the decade of the 1830s.

The first figure to take the Chautauqua stage is Cherokee leader John Ross, portrayed by actor Alex Morse. In his youth, Chief Ross fought with Andrew Jackson against the Red Stick Creek and later caused Jackson considerable trouble by fighting Indian removal vigorously and vehemently.

Price of admission is $6 or free for history center members. Tickets may be purchased at the door with cash or card. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
