What was the Trail of Tears?
A period at the beginning of the 1830's where nearly 125,000 Native Americans living west of the Mississippi were forced to move to the east into the Indian Territory which is currently modern day Oklahoma.
Andrew Jackson was very supportive of the idea of the Indian Removal Act because during his time as a war hero he had spent years leading troops in battles against the Creek Indians and the Seminole Indians so of course in 1830 he signed the Indian Removal Act.
Andrew Jackson's Opinion on Indian Removal
John Ross deeply opposed the Indian Removal Act even though he was only 1/8 Cherokee he still helped and defended the Cherokee all his life fending off white settlers trying to use Indian land during the disputing of the Indian Removal Act he won many court rulings but in the end it was not enough to stop President Jackson from signing the the act.
