Soldiers escorted the natives to their new territory. Thousands of Cherokees died on the journey to their destination due to harsh conditions, “whooping cough, typhus, dysentery, cholera and starvation”. Protection of territory was promised to them but later ended in 1907 when Oklahoma became a state. The Indian territories have completely disappeared. America desired more land and spread of influence.
The tribes had lived in cabins and were in different sections. With the introduction of the white man, Cherokee had quickly adopted different ways of life from these people. The search for gold and other resources was the main driver for Cherokee displacement. Of historical note, the movement of the Cherokee people from west to east is known as the Trail of Tears. Many have lost their lives during this journey.
Then the Cheyenne and Lakota (Sioux) arrived. One Lakota named Lone Dog made a record in a spiral, each year marked by a symbol of the most memorable thing that happened that year. Many years were shown by wars. The wars were caused by the Lakota spreading out. The Lakota were the big kids on the playground.
Great intentions don’t always reflect in the actions. If the great intentions aren’t reflected in the actions they are not received by those being effected by them. This was the case with the Indian Removal Act of 1830. At the beginning of the 1830s, nearly 125,000 Indian tribes lived on millions of acres of land that their ancestors had occupied and cultivated for generations located in the south of east coast. By the end of the decade, very few Native Americans remained anywhere in the southeastern United States, the federal militias came to Georgia to force them to leave their homelands and walk thousands miles westward to a specific designated " Indian territory " across the Mississippi River.
Many types of the similar trees have been cut down by lumber companies and wiping out important types of trees. Poaching throughout the Neches river was a big problem too, wiping almost a whole deer species out. In different years many good and bad things happened in the Neches river that shapes it up today. Richard wanted to tell every bit of history that Neches River posses and how it all happened the way it did. As much as why it all happened as well.

It was a long walk 4,000 thousand of us died from the terrible weather,illness, weakness. After the devastating journey, the Cherokee Indians tried to settle in their new "desert" home. In the new territory, problems developed with the new arrivals, and Cherokees who had already come here. These problems were quickly overcame.
The Chickasaw Nation is a Native American tribe situated in Oklahoma. They were a part of the Five Civilized Tribes. Choctaw, Creek, Cherokee, and Seminole made up the rest of the Five Nations. The Chickasaw Indians initially lived in the southeast, residing in parts of Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky. Later on, they were forced to migrate to Oklahoma.
Throughout history, there have been many events that have washed away the innocents of mankind. The Trail of Tears is a true historical horror scene, targeting one race, the Native Americans, and removing them from civilization in the most “humane” way. Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, wanted land that was already owned. The signing of the Treaty of New Echota ceded Cherokee land to the United States in exchange for compensation. In 1838 and 1839, the Indian removal policy forced the Indians to give up their land and walk to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma).
There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking. This shows Robert Lindneux wants us to visualize the hardship that Native Americans were forced into. The painting was created after the Westward expansion showing that it was not a good idea. William Weatherford, in “Adventures Among Indians”, stated “...my people are all gone--I can do no more than weep over the misfortunes of my nation. Once I could animate my warriors to battle: but I cannot animate the dead.” Native Americans fought back against the United States but many were killed during battle.
The first removal treaty to follow the passage of the Indian Removal Act was with the Choctaw Nation in 1830. In 1838 the Cherokee Nation was forcibly removed to reserved areas in what has been called “The Trail of Tears.” It is estimated that almost 8,000 Cherokee people died on the forced
To begin with, in Source E, it shows the map of the Indian Territory in Oklahoma, and it describes what went on. It states "Tens of thousands of Native Americans previously living east of the Appalachian Mountains were removed from their homes and ancestral lands by the United States Army and were forced to walk hundreds of miles at gunpoint to 'Indian Territory." This goes against everything written on those two documents because they are literally forcing tribes from east of the Appalachian to all move into one state, because they want to claim all of the land for the American people. Firstly, not all of the tribes maintain peace with each other and now they being crammed into one state all together which probably would not turn out good. In addition, the Native Americans were living in the country, before any of the Americans were, yet they are being forced to move.
They also wanted to oversee their removal. The General agreed, and Ross supervised the move. The natives were thus moved from the removal forts to internment camps till travel was resumed. The 1200 miles journey came with many hardships as heavy rains made the primitive roads treacherous. The Cherokees were forced to drag the wagons out of the muddy roads.
In the end the war caused hundreds of Indians and colonist deaths and towns and villages destroyed. One of the worst attacks was Bacon 's rebellion. About a thousand Virginians broke out of control in 1676 led by Nathaniel Bacon. They resented Berkeley 's friendly policies toward indians (Document B). Chaos swept over the Indians and the rebellion.
These Natives travelled on foot to their new lands, on what was later called the “Trail of Tears”. Thousands of them did not survive. By 1840, thousands of Native Americans had been driven from their lands in the southeastern states. These actions by the US government gave white settlers many thousands of acres of desirable
