Appalachian MountainsTranslated, the Appalachian Mountains means “People on the Other Side.” This was derived by theAppalachian Location Choctaw tribe. The Appalachians are a group of mountains located in eastern North America. It is believed that these mountains were formed during the Ordovician Period about 480 million years ago. The Appalachian Mountains served as a barrier against the westward expansion of British colonies. The Hudson and Mohawk Valleys, the only easy routes that led to the west, were populated by the Iroquois, Creeks, and the Cherokees. In 1825, the Erie Canal served as the first route through the Appalachians that was capable of large quantities of commerce.
