Trail of tears

The trail of tears is the Indian removal act where Jackson made all of the Indians move from their homes and never return. The Indians suffered through cold winters and blizzards and about 20% of the Indians on the trip died of disease or starvation. Jackson did this to make room for the settlers.. to create a new and improved america. When the Indians got to where they were being moved there was nothing there. No food or water or even shelter. Jackson set them up to die.Chief John Ross, resisted until the bitter end. About 20,000 Cherokees were marched westward at gunpoint on the infamous trail of tears. Nearly a quarter perished on the way, with the remainder left to seek survival in a completely foreign land.
