In the presidential election of 1832, the existence of the national bank is a huge topic because the second bank of the United States would expire its charter at 1836. The president Andrew Jackson won the election and he accused the bank. The citizens supported Jackson’s policy toward the second bank of the United States that Jackson insisted to finish the bank. The biggest question is how the President Jackson persuaded the citizens. The major three reasons the bank should finished is that the huge power of the bank, foreign
The main purpose of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 is to have a process where the President could grant land on the west of the Mississippi River to the Indian Tribes that agreed to give up their homelands. One of the main points of the Indian Removal Act was for the President of the United States to divide the land, where the Indian Tribes will reside, into districts and let them be distinguished from others. Another main point of the Indian Removal Act is where the President of the United States has the right to exchange any or all of the districts where the Indian Tribes reside at. The last main point of the Indian Removal Act is where the President of the United States promises the Indian Tribes a country for a country. I think the Indian
The Indian Removal Act helped United States expansion, and supported the unification of the nation. This opportunity for the Natives to expand their territory and prosper as a people, was beneficial for them, as well as for Americans past, present and future. We’d had past treaties with the Natives, but because of infractions on both sides, none of those were beneficial for too long. In May of 1830, the act was passed, to serve as a more permanent solution to the ongoing wars. The Indian Removal Act was a step in the right direction for the United States, as it created space for American’s to settle on, grow up with, and prosper on.
Have you ever been told what to do even though the law says otherwise? Was it easy or fun, but the same thing happened to the Cherokees and it was harder than what you had to go through because there wasn't as much help back then. The Cherokees were told to either move off of the US land or to follow the US rules. The Indian Removal act of 1830 was not justified because Andrew Jackson did not follow the constitution that he signed, the US forced the Cherokees to leave, and the US compelled the Cherokees to rebuild their nation.
Arguments were heard at the Supreme Court. The court agreed President Andrew Jackson refused to uphold the rule of law, turning his back on The Court. So in 1838 the Cherokee were rounded up and forced to march 800 to a 1000 miles in the winter -16,000 marched, with thousands dying along the way.
While white settlers bought up lottery tickets and a chance at Cherokee land, the Georgia Legislature began to pass new laws that would override Cherokee sovereignty. Georgia ruled that meetings of the Cherokee Legislature and courts would be illegal and anyone living on Cherokee land and not Cherokee were subject to approval under Georgia law. Some would blatantly reject these imposes of Georgia, one being Samuel Worchester, a white missionary who lived in Cherokee territory for years was jailed and sentenced to “hard labor.” Georgia state legislator’s efforts, were in essence to write the Cherokees out of existence, ignoring the nation’s constitution, borders and laws in the pursuit of Cherokee land. When Cherokee’s approached President
The remaining Cherokee Indians were surrounded by the mast increasing majority of the whites. With the increasing of the white the population, the Cherokee were forced to adapt to the white man’s world and their way of life to blend in for survival. They created their own government, they became farmers, blacksmiths, carpenters, masons, owners of property. The Cherokees nation resisted removal using political means by publishing newspaper through the pressing press and protesting to the federal government; addressing memorial to the nation; a public plea for justice resulting in Georgia passing a law making it a crime for a white person to stay in Indian territory without taking an oath to the state of Georgia. The Cherokee Indians went through lawful and political means of resistance to avoid removal but it was ignored and their land was put on sale, property taken, and treaty created; still the Cherokee followed a policy of
The state of Georgia refused to recognize the Cherokee constitution, thus forcing the Cherokee to take their fight all the way to the Supreme Court. Even though the Supreme Court would rule in favor of the Cherokee people, Georgia would refuse to acknowledge the Supreme Court’s decision. Jackson openly defied the decision of the Supreme Court and forced the Cherokee off their land. Members of the civilized Cherokee nation went from feeling included by the government because of the advances that they had made in American civilization, to feeling that they were being cast out into a foreign territory. As Chief John Ross confirmed the Cherokee people were once again “to become strangers and wanderers in the land of their fathers, forced to return to the savage life, and to seek a new home in the wilds of the far west, and that without their consent” (Pg. 1) .
The Cherokee took the Georgian government to court over their land rights. It eventually escalated to Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the Cherokee keeping their land. However, the president, Andrew Jackson was used the power given to him in the Indian Removal Act to reject the Supreme Court’s ruling and kick the Cherokee off anyway. Much later in 1838, the Cherokee were forced to walk 1,200 miles from their land all the way to Oklahoma,in what is now called the Trail of Tears. It was full of horrible violations of basic human rights, such as being granted no place to sleep and were deprived of rest during the frigid winter.
The Cherokee tribe specifically was one of the most defiant groups of the Removal Act. One of the most notable forms of protests that the Cherokee did was contacting the United States Congress. These actions eventually led to the Cherokee Removal Act. Officials realized that the Indian Removal Act failed to control the Cherokee, so some states extended jurisdiction into the Cherokee nations to force them out. By having this power, states like Georgia were able to sell the Cherokees land while they were still living there.
In 1838, the Cherokees were forced to give up their lands and to migrate to present-day Oklahoma, due to the signing of The Treaty of New Echota. The Cherokees were deported from their homes, betrayed by the government whom they treated with respect, separated them from their land that they nurtured; the Cherokee struggled to understand how to make a new life. The Indian Removal led to thousands of Cherokees to die due to starvation, diseases, and exhaustion during their march known as The Trail of Tears. This paper will discuss the effects it had on the Cherokees and what has happened during the trail.
Private John G. Burnett accounted his military experiences in 1839 as follows:"I saw the helpless Cherokees arrested and dragged from their homes, and driven at the bayonet point into the stockades. And in the chill of a drizzling rain on an October morning I saw them loaded like cattle or sheep into six hundred and forty-five wagons and started toward the west.” A direct result of the Indian Removal Act of 1830, this was the harsh reality for more than 20,000 Native Americans living in America’s southeast (“Cherokee Removal - The Trail Where They Cried”). In order to acquire more land for white settlers and farmers producing profitable crops in the south, President Andrew Jackson proposed a plan for removal in 1829 (Stewart, 37). This plan was signed into law in 1830 as the Indian Removal Act.
The Cherokees representatives that agreed to the treaty was only a few, and was elected by the Georgia government, who chose them because they support the removal. “... Sir, that paper... Cold a treaty is not ready at all because it was not sanctioned by the great body of the Cherokee and made without their participation or assent.”
In this attack, he moved about 20% of United States’ money into private banks. These banks were known as ‘’pet’’ banks because they politically supported Andrew Jackson. This causes what we know as The Bank War. Andrew Jackson enlarged credit by doing away with the bank. Andrew Jackson then moved the money from those banks into the private ones that only supported him.
The Indian Removal Act was signed in 1830 by President Andrew Jackson to remove the Cherokee Indians from their homes and force them to settle west of the Mississippi River. The act was passed in hopes to gain agrarian land that would replenish the cotton industry which had plummeted after the Panic of 1819. Andrew Jackson believed that effectively forcing the Cherokees to become more civilized and to christianize them would be beneficial to them. Therefore, he thought the journey westward was necessary. In late 1838, the Cherokees were removed from their homes and forced into a brutal journey westward in the bitter cold.
