Why was Andrew Jackson removed from the front of the $20 bill?
Initially, the Indian Removal act seemed like a beneficial and efficient plan. Native Americans were guaranteed "better" land, while the common people were provided with the Native Americans' homeland. The Native Americans would have been isolated from white people once they arrive to Oklahoma. However, this journey to a supposedly better land really led to the Trail of Tears.

Therefore, many died on this treacherous journey.
