  • Indian Removal Law
  • Execution By The Military
  • Death Toll Of Life On The Trail
  • The Indian Removal Act was signed into law on May 28, 1830, by United States President Andrew Jackson. The law authorized the president to negotiate with southern Native American tribes for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for white settlement of their ancestral lands.
  • Military troops tracked down 5 tribes and forced them to either die or begin walking 800 miles to Reservations in Present Day Oklahoma
  • As many as 4,000 died of disease, starvation and exposure during their detention and forced migration through nine states that became known as the “Trail of Tears.”
