President Jackson did not treat the Indians fairly, the land belonged to the Indians, and the Indians rights were being violated. President Jackson did not treat any of the Indians fairly. President Jackson had the Indians move from where they lived to west of the Mississippi River. In President Andrew Jackson’s Message to Congress on December 6,1830, it stated that “Cherokee nation occupies its own territory and no Georgia citizens have the right to enter.” (Worcester) The Cherokee had their territory but it was taken away by Jackson. President Jackson did this because the U.S. was desperate for land.
The Trail of Tears left by the Cherokee Indians “Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race.” -― Martin Luther King Jr The Trail of Tears helped the Manifest Destiny and Westward Expansion lead to the Civil War in many ways. The Trail of Tears caused more tension to rise in the United States. Native Americans became angry and lost trust in the American governmentbecause the settlers forced and physically moved them out of their homes. The Trail of Tears helps the Manifest Destiny because it is mainly the idea that moving west will bring more comfort and new riches to the settlers. This is major expansion westward.
Some people would say that Andrew Jackson was a terrible president because he made the Indians move and he abused the power to veto to try and take more control over congress. Instead of running on a party platform Andrew Jackson appealed to the people. Andrew Jackson got people more involved with presidential elections and won their votes with all of his public exposure. Today presidential elections are held like Andrew Jackson making him the first modern president. Andrew Jackson was president from March 4 1829 to March 4
When the Europeans began colonizing the New World, they had a problematic relationship with the Native Americans. The Europeans sought to control a land that the Natives inhabited all their lives. They came and decided to take whatever they wanted regardless of how it affected the Native Americans. They legislated several laws, such as the Indian Removal Act, to establish their authority. The Indian Removal Act had a negative impact on the Native Americans because they were driven away from their ancestral homes, forced to adopt a different lifestyle, and their journey westwards caused the deaths of many Native Americans.
This tariff was established by President John Quincy Adams to help the economy in the United States. They said it violated the constitution so they nullified it. President Jackson tried to address this issue by revising the tariff, which was the Tariff of 1832, which the residents of South Carolina thought would help them, but did nothing for them. They again nullified this tariff. What President Jackson did was he made the Force Bill which stated that the president can deploy military forces into South Carolina.
He did not follow Jefferson’s plan of Assimilation, rather he sought to remove Indians wholesale from their property and move them somewhere, “deemed unsuitable for white settlement. Jackson claimed his plans for separation were beneficial for Native Americans, without explaining why they couldn’t remain separate on their own land. Viciously uprooting Native Americans meant that the practices they had been carrying on for centuries were, for the most part, halted. Even after Native Americans had ceded land, Jefferson consistently broke those treaties, with the most blatant being the ratification of the Treaty of New Echota. In this treaty, he took the word of several unelected people of the Cherokee Nation as an agreement on behalf of all of them, because it fit his desires.
Andrew Jackson was said to be one of the democratic president to have good and bad choices during his term. Andrew Jackson made history for being the first democratic president. People thought that his choices were very bad for the country. Others thought that Andrew Jackson’s choices help to make the country greater and more better. Andrew Jackson was chosen for president for the smart decisions he made during the war.
For Jefferson, assimilation was best for Native Americans; second best was removal to the west. He felt the worst result of the cultural conflict between European Americans and Native Americans would be their attacking the whites. Thomas Jefferson’s views of Indians reflect those commonly found in eighteenth cen-tury America and they set the stage for nineteenth century American Indian policies in-cluding the forced removal of Indians from their homelands. Jefferson, the icon of free-dom and personal liberty established the national policy towards Native Americans that would last for over one hundred years. He began what would destroy cultures and re-sult in the reservation system.
In the article “The Hunger for Indian Land in Andrew Jackson’s America” written by Anthony F. C. Wallace, the treatment of Indian tribes and land in the Jacksonian Era is discussed. This purpose of the article is to explain the reason for Indian removal that occurred under Andrew Jackson’s presidency. The thesis of this article is that Americans kicked the natives off of their land to expand America's cotton industry. In Wallace’s first point he explains Andrew Jackson's reasons for removing the Indians from their lands were for his personal interest rather than for the good of the people. Jackson was looking at land that was in Northern Alabama and was seen as a “prospectively lucrative site for agricultural development” (Wallace).
These people had lived in North America for millions of years, but when the Europeans began to explore this newfound land, the Native Americans were treated as inferior humans who had absolutely no value. They were ripped from their homes, killed, or forced to move elsewhere no matter how it would poorly affect their lives. Though this did not negatively impact Britain, it was a huge negative impact of their imperialism as a whole. Millions of Native Americans were killed in the process of establishing an imperial relationship between America and Europe. In one instance, the British settlers purposefully infected an entire large native tribe with small-pox so that they could conquer the land of the natives (Burch).
Some of Jackson’s military feats include defeating the Creek Indians, who were threatening the southern border while allied with Great Britain, and the Battle of New Orleans, where he forced stationed British troops to evacuate the city. Jackson lost the presidential election of 1824 to John Quincey Adams, due to a “corrupt bargain” between John Adams and Henry Clay. However, Jackson won the 1828 presidential election by an electoral vote of 178 for Jackson to 83 for Adams. I believe that Andrew Jackson was a bad president for America because of some of his questionable choices for the young country, such as how Jackson handled the Nullification Crisis and the Indian Removal Act. These are by no suggestion the only choices Jackson picked that were questioned in the future.
De’lizce Blue Assassination paper 9th grade lit Dr. marks 3a The assassination of Abraham Lincoln was unjustified because he was faulted because he signed the Emancipation proclamation, sought to liberate the states, and he made the confederate surrender the civil war.

John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham lincoln for liberating all races. Booth assassinated president Lincoln t at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C in 1864.
Perhaps the most controversial of Jackson’s actions during his presidency is the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that lead to the Trail of Tears. Soon after becoming president, Jackson passed the former act which called for the relocation of native tribes from their homelands to a designated “Indian territory” in present-day Oklahoma. While Jackson had a clear idea of his plans, he befriended the tribes and promised them prosperity, friendship, and the possibility of becoming civilized children of God. In other words, he, the symbol of reassurance in America, stabbed the backs of all natives. Beyond the question of Jackson 's morality, what was the ultimate reason behind the removal?
Andrew Jackson presidency focused a lot on small government and pleasing the common man. He attempted to shut down national banks to make government smaller. Jackson also enforces things like the Indian Removal Policy, which strengthened the bond between Jackson and the common man. Jackson was the first and only president to make the country debt too. All of these impacted are government today very much as well as other governments around the world.

Another was Jackson’s response to the federal debt. Also his removal of all the Cherokees, and send them far west to inferior lands. These events were some of the most memorable from Jackson’s presidency.
