in 1838 american soldiers arrived to move the Cherokees away from their homes and land. the soldiers had different feelings than others, some felt bad while some were harsh to the Cheerokes. the soldiers forced the Cherokees hundreds of miles away from their homes.
This is our land now! move out.
The Cherokees were among the last to be moved away. they had known that this moment had be coming for years. the soldiers found their land ideal for hunting and clearing out.
this is unfair! we were here way before them.
though the Cherokees wanted to keep their land they knew they had to move on. they tried to fit in with the settlers, by following the settlers traditions. still the settlers didnt acceot them. they fought the Cherokees and took their land. Jackson tried to get the indians to move by offering land in trade but they disagreed. in 1831 the Cherokees were forced out.
the Cherokees journey west was horrible for them. heat cold snow and rain all added to the misery. disease was common among camps and the young and old died first. many didn't survive. this westward journey is known as the trail of tears.
after all these hard ships the group of Indians settled in Oklahoma. Americans took over the land that was left by the groups of tribes.
