Removal and Remembering

Archaeology and the Legacies of Displacement in Southern Appalachia

(p.127) 6 Removal and Remembering
The Archaeology of Removal in North America

Audrey Horning

University Press of Florida

Audrey Horning’s chapter examines U.S. policy, the national park system, popular representations of hill people who were displaced from their residences, and shifting Appalachian land use during the 1920s and 1930s. This chapter explores the ways various important factors, including race relations, conservation, poverty programs, and community development, all worked to create removal. Artifacts, local people’s writings, and archival evidence illustrate how uprooted people challenged mass mediated, academic, and institutional narratives about the dispossessed. This chapter illustrates at multiple scales the nuances of individual experiences, the diverse social interests involved, and the insights of a comparative perspective.
