National Park Service workers Dino Selimagic and Tim Ferguson spread wood chips as they make preparations for the new section of the Moccasin Bend National Archaeological District that will have opening ceremonies this Saturday. Planners used GPS to find the route of the old Federal Road, and several sections of the new trail follow the original road that led the Cherokee to Brown's Ferry and the start of the Trail of Tears.
