Jackson Torments and Destroys Native Americans Shamelessly
The journey to Oklahoma was not pleasant at all and was known as 'The Trail of Tears'. On the journey, many died from food poisoning from the food given by Jackson, diseases,and becoming too weak from the tiring journey. Many kids, adults, and elderly had died and harsh officers wouldn't even allow family members to bury their loved ones or have a proper goodbye.
Jackson killed many, with no shame and claimed that he was doing it for the good of the common man. Jackson just sugar coated something to look so harmless, when in reality, he created a catastrophe and not only took the land from the natives, but took life from them.
JACKSON'S WAY.OR NO WAY.
Jackson was so unfair that he even gave government jobs to his friends and to people who voted for him, which became known as the spoils system. The spoils system made the government become extremely unfair and corrupt because no one had a chance to get good at their job.
