London

Two life-sized figures, of Timberlake and Ostenaco, stand before a period print of Ranelagh, one of the public venues that the Cherokees frequented in London.  Panels beside them feature comments that contrast Cherokee and British culture.

Prints from newspapers, portraits painted while the Cherokees were in London, and details from journals illustrate their appearance and clothing.  Artifacts bring to life excerpts from Timberlake’s Memoirs and contemporary accounts of their activities in London and meeting with King George III.

An epilogue section follows their fate.  Information on publication of the Memoirs and Cherokee people today concludes the exhibit.
