Miami University cordially invites you to this solemn event in remembrance of October 11, 1846. On that day, Myaamia people, who were forcibly removed from their Indiana homelands, passed through Butler County on the Miami Erie Canal, along the Great Miami River, as they journeyed to lands that later became Kansas.
