Trail Of Tears

The tragedy of America

How it all started.

From 1838 to 1839 Andrew Jackson wrote a treaty which would result in the removal of the Native Americans and forcing them into unknown territory which is today's Oklahoma. This was also the beginning of the death of entire tribes. Many of the elder Natives Americans would not make the entire journey due to poor conditions when they were traveling through the rough terrain. This was one of the biggest cases of social injustice.

The treaty stated that the Indians had to move from their land east of the Mississippi to present day Oklahoma. While moving across this new area the harsh weather conditions and lack of food caused starvation and disease among the tribes.
