  • Trail of Tears
  • Samuel A. Worchester was a non-Native American missionary who was arrested in Georgia for living in Native American territory without a license. He then sued the state.

They then sent a bill to Jackson saying that the Cherokee were a separate nation but didn't enforce it.

  • The Indian Removal Act was used as a trick to cheat the Cherokee out of their land. The first part known as the Treaty of Echota signed by only a few Cherokee and not the leaders.
  • The Trail of Tears is a route used by the Native Americans to reach the West. Given little food and only the clothes on their backs families were sent on the trail never to see their homes or land ever again.
  • Andrew Jackson, even at a young age, was notorious for gambling. On a trip to Charleston, South Carolina he lost all his grandfather's inheritance. While gambling in general was his favorite he particularly enjoyed betting horses.
