Andrew Jackson was the president of the United States in the 1830’s. He made a treaty with the Cherokee tribe to protect them but instead he told them they have to move to a different home on the west side of the Mississippi River or else. Andrew Jackson told people in the U.S. that the Indians were going to attack the people if he doesn’t move the Indians very quickly.
Andrew Jackson told some of the solders to go with them and come back to him at once to tell him they were seat. At least 4,000 Indians died of hunger, thirst, or they had dieases, half where killed by soldiers. (gunned down, slayed, or hung by a rope)
Andrew Jackson wanted them to move so he could sell the land, to farmers for money to give to him and, the government.
All those Indians died just for a piece of land and money. These days we just give the government money and they don’t do anything.
Indians were tortured, beaten, shot, wiped at and, hung by a rope. The most weapon used was a "riding crop." Some of the Indian cruelty is still going on today but not in the U.S. in different countries. All that Indian cruelty was all done for money not the best of the Cherokee tribe, not to protect them from enemies or their people. The people of the U.S. were protesting that Indians should not have been pushed out of there homes. They weren't afraid of the Indians they wonted to be friends and, make peace with them.
Battle of the Treaties:
To the 1750’s to the 1850’s there was lots of bad things going on with the Americans and the British and the Cherokee.
At first some of the Cherokees and British did not become good friends. But then out of the blue they were building a relationship.
After Cherokee women and British men (or the opposite) were starting to get married. The British promised the Cherokees to protect their land with them from the American colonists.
When the Cherokees and British settled in with each other a war agents the Americans and the Cherokee with the British. The war ended.
A new president came and, that president was George Washington and he said to the Cherokees that they could be U.S. citizens so they gave spinning wheels to the women to make clothes out of coton and, gave the men guns to hunt. ( the women got more $ [money] then the men ) The Indian men and, women were free but some tribes were still being beaten and, killed.
