Old Federal Road Cherokee Lands.
The Federal Road through the Cherokee nation is shown as passing northwest
to southeast through the modern day Georgia counties of Walker, Catoosa,
Whitfield, Murray, Gilmer, Pickens, Dawson, Forsyth, Hall, Jackson, into Clarke
county where it intersected the Pickens Trail (NE to SW) and became the Middle
Cherokee Path. The Middle Cherokee Path continued in a southeasterly
direction through modern day Oglethorpe, Wilkens, Lincoln, Columbia, and Richmond
counties to Augusta. The Pickens Trail ran in a southwesterly direction from the
Upper Cherokee Path in Franklin county near South Carolina to the Lower
Cherokee Road where modern day Greene, Morgan, and Putnam counties meet. Source:
