Indian Removal Act

Key Figure

Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson was born on March 15, 1767 in Waxhaw, South Carolina. He only made it to an elementary education. He fought bravely against Indians in numerous wars. Jackson became president in 1828. On May 28, 1830 he signed into law the Indian Removal Act which allowed the president to negotiate land. President Jackson was supportive of a speedy removal. He hoped all good citizens would unite red men (a nick name for Indians) and white Americans. Because of this, the country economy grew. Andrew Jackson died on June 8, 1845.
