JULY 29, 2010 WWW.HORRYINDEPENDENT.COM THE HORRY INDEPENDENT [ CONWAY, S.C. B7 f~ 000 n a historical mark- er located on the Court House lawn at Bryson City, N.C. is the following inscription: "Tsali, Cherokee Brave, surrendered to Geffl Scott to be shot near here, 1838, that remnant of tribe might remain in N.C." This marker refers to a very dark chapter in American and Cherokee his- tory. In the late 1830's our gov- ernment decided to forcibly relocate over 17,000 Cherokee Indians from their home in Western N.C. all the way to OklahOma. This tragic struggle-on- foot led to the death of more than 4,000 Cherokees and is still referred to as the terrible "Trail of Tears". Before GeneralWmfield Scott, assigned to oversee this fiasco, could round up all of the Cherokees, about 1,000 escaped to the friendly refuge of the Great Smoky MountainS. In the conflict before the forced march, the wife of a Cherokee brave named Tsali was murdered by a drunker soldier. As an act of vengeance for his wife's death, Tsali and some of his family killed the soldier. They too escaped to the haven of the Smoky Mountains. General Scott made a pro- posal and sent it to Tsali via a friend. He said that if Tsali and the others who killed the soldier would turn them- selves in to be shot for his murder the remnant of the tribe could stay in their homeland. Tsali's love for his people was greater than his love for himself or his fear of death. He and two other Cherokees bravely walked into General Scott's camp and were shortly thereafter executed. The remaining Cherokees were then free to remain in the Great Smokies.

Greater love had no one than this, that He, God, would lay down His life on a cross, paying the full price for the sins of mankind, bearing the most painful of all deaths, dying in shame, buried in a borrowed tomb, but rising victoriously and living to give the free gift of eternal life and to make intercession for His own.

The implication is that we would never consider it for a "bad" person. But verse 8 of that chapter reminds us that"God com- mendeth (demonstrates) His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus said of Himself in John 10:11, "I am the good shepherd; the good shep- herd gives his life for the sheep." And while doubtless look- ing down through time to Calvary, Christ said in John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you." The story of Tsali has touched my heart since I first heard it years ago. The greater story of Christ's love and sacrifice on the cross is even greater and more far reaching. Tsali died so that his brothers, the Cherokee could continue to live in their homeland. Christ died so that we, sin- ful, disobedient, rebellious, could have our sins forgiven and could live with Him in a "new" homeland, heaven, forever and ever. Tsali died for the few. Christ died so that anyone who would come to Him in faith believ- ing might be called the chil- dren of God and might have the etemal inheritance promised by God's Word.
