xIs it wrong to kick someone out of their own home when they didn’t do anything wrong? The Cherokee was in that same situation. The Cherokees’ situation was just like taking a cell phone ,which is dear to a human, away. They were kicked off their own land. They had done nothing too bad, but the Georgians wanted them to leave. The Supreme Court even allowed them to stay, but the new settlers still wanted them out. The Indian Removal isn’t justified and the Indians should have stayed in Georgia because it was their own land, staying would help their health, and only a few signed the treaty.
Imagine having to walk over 1200 miles because someone else wants you land. In 1820 five Native American tribes the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole, Cherokee, and Creek Indians were invaded by all of the white people who came to the U.S from Europe, and the white men got very settled. Ever since the white men showed up to the U.S. there was conflict with the Native Americans. The Indian Removal Act is when southern Indian tribes formed their removal of the Natives and forced them to leave all of there stuff. I believe that the Indian Removal Act is a step in the wrong direction because we were not treating the Native Americans like human beings, it went against the constitution, and jackson wanted to build a wall to separate.
The dispersing of the Indians, particularly the five civilized tribes of the southwest: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole fairly began before the approval of the Indian Removal Act. As the European-Americans were progressing the procedure of passing the Act was bound to happen. They were once a secluded society and now forced to a loss of war. The Indian Removal Act was signed on 1830 by President Andrew Jackson. The act allowed President Andrew Jackson to provide the states with federal funds to remove the civilized tribes and reject the Indians from letting them to be part of the European-American society. The Indians did establish schools, develop written language and laws and even became sedentary farmers. Even though they had done all this to become a citizen they were still not recognized. They gave up hunting to adapt the European-American culture. The policy was designed to remove the Native Americans by the American government. The Indian Removal Act was not just created in the 1830’s but was culminated in the nineteenth century. The factors that led President Jackson to pass the act were the finding of the gold in Georgia on Cherokee land and the issue of states’ privileges.
At the beginning of the 19th, the United States was looking for an expansion of land. The white settlers wanted the lands used by the Indians for their own economic gain. By 1830, President Jackson issued the Indian Removal Act; allowing state officials to override federal protection of Native Americans. Most Indian tribes left their homelands in Georgia during the early 1830s. However, the Cherokees remained. In 1838, the experiences the Cherokee Indians endured on the Trail of Tears could best be described as brutal.
Around the 1800s, the United Stated government was trying to figure out a way to remove the Indian tribes such as the Seminole, Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Choctaw from the southeast. Many American settlers wanted to remove the Indians there because they sawDuring President Jackson 's term of office, he signed the Indian Removal Act on May 28, 1830. This Indian Removal Act, President Jackson let to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands within existing state borders. There were tribes that left their lands peacefully; however, many other Indian people refused to relocate. In the fall and winter of 1838 and 1839, one of the tribes known as Cherokees were forcibly moved west by the government.
Thomas Jefferson during his terms (1801-1809), Jefferson made on of the most controversial decision at that time, the Louisiana Purchase, he sent James Monroe in 1803 to help with the negotiation to buy New Orleans. Monroe was astonished to learn that France already offered to sell 828,00 square miles of Louisiana to the United States for $15 million (4cent an acre), by April 30 they sign a treaty to purchase the vast territory. Its legality was questionable, the constitution gave him no clear authority to acquire new territory and incorporate into the nation but it promised fulfillment of the dream of a continental nation reaching the Pacific Coast.
The Indian Removal Act passed Congress on May 28, 1830 under Andrew Jackson's administration. This Act gave the president the right to negotiate with native tribes in the South and move them to designated lands to preserve their heritage called "reservations". The mentality behind this law centered around the idea
How would you feel if you were told that you have to move off of your own land to somewhere else just for the pleasure of other people? The Indian Removal Act will not only be cruel and harsh, but it will be extremely wrong on our part. What side do you stand on? Are you in favor of, or against it? You surely, will not only disagree with this act, but will be completely against it. By far, the Indian Removal Act is a very barbarous thing to put our fellow Native Americans through.
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
Manifest Destiny was the 19th-century doctrine or belief that the expansion of the US throughout the American continents was both justified and inevitable. Of course there were already Native Americans living in the area. The new people in the U.S. wanted to push the Native Americans out and make room for their new settlements. Not all of the Native Americans were very happy about being pushed out of their homes. The Native Americans were affected greatly by Manifest Destiny.
The land you live on today is legally the land of the United States. But did you ever stop to think who this land belongs to before it came in the hands of the U.S? Well, of course not. Its because the Indians whose lives and souls were once dedicated to this very land have been pushed into mini little reservations without a single consent from their side. This all happened due to the Indian Removal Act of 1830 which was brought to the attention of Congress in a special meeting by President Andrew Jackson. Jackson presented his ideas on acquiring the land belonging to the Native Americans, as well as ideas on persuading and manipulating the innocent people to hand it over and move out. It was a storm of racism holding Jackson's ideas in the
Do you like getting kicked out after working hard and establishing a great community.On May 28, 1830 Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act. This act states that all the indians will have to move from their land that they had first into unknown land that is supposedly a huge hunk of the Louisiana just for them with fertile soil and a water source. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was terrible and unjustified; indians had already build up an amazing society, they were there first, and the americans have already messed with the indians.
Indians had lived in the same areas for many years and had become much more accustomed to being civilized and had even started schools, making laws and becoming farmers. But all of that didn’t matter, there was increasing pressure to open up the area the Indians inhabited so the white
"It will be my sincere and constant desire to observe toward the Indian tribes within our limits a just and liberal policy, and to give that humane and considerate attention to their rights and their wants which is consistent with the habits of our Government and the feelings of our people." -- Andrew Jackson’s speech about the Indian Removal Act of 1830 in 1830. The Cherokee are a Native American Tribe that live in Oklahoma and North Carolina, and have lived there for decades. In 1830, Andrew Jackson (the president during this time) was mad because the Cherokee Indians had been hurting and scalping people in Georgia. Because of this, Jackson put up the idea of a removal act, a way to get the Cherokee to either move out of Georgia or abide by state law. The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was justified because the Cherokee scalped many Americans during the 1700s and 1800s, their leaders already agreed to move, and we gave them even more land than
On July 17, 1830, the Cherokee nation published an appeal to all of the American people. United States government paid little thought to the Native Americans’ previous letters of their concerns. It came to the point where they turned to the everyday people to help them. They were desperate.
