The Trail of Tears was an event in the 1830s where the government forced Native Americans to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River.
What was the Trail of Tears?
Jackson seemed to agree with the plan on removing Indians from east of the Mississippi river to the west. When the Indians asked for federal protection, President Jackson denied.
Andrew Jackson's Opinion on Indian Removal
Chief John Ross and the majority of the Cherokee people were adamantly opposed to removal but eventually, they were forced to leave and Ross signed the new treaties on July 19, 1866.

I feel that the Trail of Tears wasn't very pleasant because I know that the United States and the Indians weren't great friends but the least that the U.S. could have done was provide help and support for the dying and hopeless Indians that lived under the same government and in the same country as everyone else.
