Storyboard Text

  • Andrew Jackson
  • "I propose that we implement the Indian Removal Act. It will transport Indians in Georgia and surrounding states to Indian Territory. Southern farmers can have the land for crops and the U.S. can make more money. The Indians are totally okay with this and it will give them an opportunity to pursue real happiness"(Zinn Education Project).
  • "Whites shouldn't be allowed on Indian Land! Indians have the right to it. We've signed treaties saying so"(Davidson 357).
  • Worcester vs. Georgia
  • "Indians should move to Indian Territory! We need their land for crops and money. They are okay with moving"(Zinn Education Project).
  • "The verdict is that Georgia's laws have no force over Indians. The U.S. has prior treaties stating the Cherokees have their own country. The Indian Removal Act is not legal"(Davidson 357).
  • "The Indian Removal Act has already been signed into effect. The court ruling has no power over me. I order all Indians living in the Southeast to move to Indian Territory, effective  immediately"(Davidson 357).
  • "You can't make us Cherokees move. We are entitled to our land. We were here before the white people. Our ancestors are buried here, why should we have to move?"(Davidson 357).
  • Martin Van Buren
  • "You can't hold out here any longer. As eight president I am forcing you to move to Indian Territory. My people need this land"(Davidson 359).
