  • The Indian Removal Act gets passed through Congress and then sets off to the president to be signed into a law. Andrew Jackson convinced the Cherokee to sign a treaty to give their land and the U.S paid 5 million dollars.
  • The Indian removal act was sighed by the president.  He also convinced the Native americans leaders to sign a treaty to sell their land.
  • Most native americans were not excited to leave their homeland.  The first tribe to be forced off their land was the Choctaw tribe.
  • General Winfeild Scott led the soldiers who led the native Americans off their land.  Much of the new land promised to the native Americans was later taken away.
