In Waxhaw, South Carolina, seventh president Andrew Jackson was born on March 15, 1767 of Scotch-Irish immigrants. He died on June 8, 1845 at the Hermitage, near Nashville, Tennessee. The Waxhaw area did not offer many opportunities for him to receive formal education, and what little was received was interrupted by the British invasion of the western Carolinas in 1780 – 1781. His mother and two brothers were killed around the end of the invasion, fixing a lifelong resentment towards England. Following the end of the American Revolution, he studied law in Salisbury, North Carolina.
The Cherokee Indians The Cherokee are a tribe consisting of native americans. They were located by the mountanious souths where a complex river system reached the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf Of Mexico, and Mississipi Basin, in the present day the were located in small portions of georgia,tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, Virginia and West Virginia. The Cherokee developed extensive relations with many indeginous people and the United States. The Cherokee 's economic conditions were good, they traded with other tribes and with the U.S. Over time a conflict came up which was that Georgia wanted to remove the Cherokees from their land.
The first compromise was in 1820 call the Missouri Compromise. The debate was where slavery would be allowed to take place. The Northwest Ordinance was the Northwest territory created beyond the Appalachian Mountains, this action was a responds to many differ things such as war. Then the compromise was that Missouri enter as a slave stated and Maine enter as a free state and the line of 36' 30" is the line that separates slavery everything above it is free and everything below it was a slave state. The Missouri compromise was effective for almost thirty years until similar problems arose and the compromise became less and less effective.
The Choctaw Indians were the original people found in in the Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida regions. They were forced along the Trail of Tears in the 1800 's. Most Choctaw descendants live in Oklahoma today. The Trail of Tears was a path on which many Native Americans were forced away from their original homelands, also know as the Indian Removal. Americans created an Indian Territory located in Oklahoma.
The Expansion of Georgia came with many conflicts such as the treaty of New York that was established in 1790 and caused the creeks to move west of the Okeene River. There was also the Yazoo land fraud that started in 1795 and caused Georgia to give up all of the land involved in the fraud to Georgia. Indian removal caused a decrease in population within Georgia but made Georgia to gain more land. Events that accrued during that time affected Georgia economy, social growth and population. Abraham Baldwin wrote the first charter for the University of Georgia.
He was accepted as one of them by the community of indians. He was given the Cherokee name “Coloneh,” which means “The Raven.” Ravens are crucial to Cherokee mythology. Houston later became the governor of Tennessee in 1827, 15 years after fighting under Andrew Jackson’s command.
This led to the Indian Removal Act and what the Cherokee call Trail of Tears. Over several years, Jackson seized millions of acres of Indian Lands making room for cotton plantations. The Removal Act signed in 1830, by President Jackson, was to guarantee the Indians would have land in the west but these promises were later broken. The Removal Act was
The Indian Removal Act was signed into law in 1830 by President Andrew Jackson. The act provided for the general control over the Native Americans from east of the Mississippi River to lands west, which was the Indian’s Territory. Even though, the removal was meant to be voluntary, the removal became a law. Thousands of Indian people including nearly the whole population of Indians that had lived in the southeastern United States were moved to the west. The first removal treaty to follow the passage of the Indian Removal Act was with the Choctaw Nation in 1830.
America in the 1830’s was bigger than it had ever been, and expansion was just beginning. Americans were packing up their belongings and moving west to start new states, new cities and new lives for their families. Thomas Jefferson’s idea of Manifest Destiny was truly coming to light but sadly, it came at the expense of the many Native American tribes. Following the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that was signed by the current President Andrew Jackson, many Native American tribes living in what was now southeast America, were forced to leave their homes and migrate west. The removal of these tribes left more land for white Americans to settle in without the threat of attacks from Native tribes.
It can be argued that the Missouri Compromise not only put off the start of the Civil War, but was also a cause. Many contributing factors led up to the Civil War in the years following the passing after the Missouri Compromise. Years after the Missouri Compromise went into effect, Congress passed the Tariff Act of 1833, sometimes called the Compromise Tariff. This was proposed by Henry Clay, and called for the gradual reduction of tariffs, ending the Nullification Crisis. In 1846, United States’ President James Polk requested 2 million dollars to purchase land from Mexico following the Mexican-American War.
