The indian removal act happpened in 1800. Andrew Jackson was the president and war hero of that time and he was the one who inforced it even when cingress was against it. 1/4 of the indians died before they reached the new land. Indians didn't know what to do they, were forced at gun point,didn't have alot of supplies, and watched there loved ones die almost everyday. They did have two choices but both were a lose/lose situation for the indians and the ones who stuck up for the indians were threaten.
