For an estimated 9,000 Native Americans, Blythe Ferry was the final point of departure from their ancestral lands. The ferry served as a gathering point as the Trail of Tears deportation began in 1838. While the ferry no longer exists, the site is now part of the Cherokee Removal Memorial Park. For over a year during the Civil War, a company of the 5th Tennessee Infantry Regiment was stationed here to guard the mouth of the Hiwassee River.
