1832- Worcester vs. Georgia
We have to leave now ;(
Andrew Jackson was elected in 1828. Jackson won the election by using the fact that he grew up as a common man that grew up in western territory this made him very popular to the citizens of the U.S. He shaped his cabinet with all of his friends which was named The Spoils System.
1836- Trail of Tears
In 1828 South Carolina got fed up with the protective tariff and decided that they would nullify it because John C. Calhoun said it was constitutional that states could nullify an act but Daniel Webster said the opposite. Andrew JAckson was totally against S.C. being able to nullify it and threatened to send in the army but Henry Clay made a compromise between them.
The start of this case started when Worcester was living on Indian land which was illegal in Georgia at that time. This reasulted in him being arrested and put in jail. The Indians went to the Supreme Court and John Marshall said the Indians were independent and that Worcester should be let go. But this just resulted in the Jackson and Georgia not carting and kicking the Indians out anyways.
Andrew Jackson forced over 16,000 native americans off their land in the southeastern U.S. and over 4,000 native americans died from starvation or freezing.
