The Trail of Tears commonly refers to a series of forced relocations of Native American nations in the United States following the indian removal act of 1830. The removal included members of the Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole, Chickasaw, andChoctaw nations, who chose not to assimilate with American society, from their ancestral homelands in the southeastern U.S. to an area west of the Mississippi River that had been designated as Indian territory. Native Americans who chose to stay and assimilate were allowed to become citizens in their states and of the U.S.The phrase "Trail of Tears" originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831.

Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route to their destinations, and many died, including 2,000-6,000 of the 16,542 relocated Cherokee.


In the politics of the united states, a spoils system (also known as a patronage system) is a practice where a political party, after winning an election, gives government jobs to its supporters, friends and relatives as a reward for working toward victory, and as an incentive to keep working for the party—as opposed to a merit system, where offices are awarded on the basis of some measure of merit, independent of political activity.

Andrew Jackson places unfair and unreasonable tariffs on the South. While the South got poorer and went into poverty the North hasd no effect or possibly got richer. So South Carolina treatens to secede from the Union (witch is illeagal) Congress then passes the Force Bill to literaly force the south to pay the taxes but not after a compromise of lowering the price of the tariffs and the problem is fixed for now
