Andrew Jackson and the Natives
Indian Removal Act
Before Jackson ignored the Worcester v. Georgia ruling, he was getting Congress to pass the Indian Removal Act. They passed it, and Jackson signed it into law. It said the Natives had two years to leave peacefully before being forced out. Most of the natives stayed until the two year deadline though.

We won the Worcester v. Georgia case. Why did Jackson ignore it? Also, what happened to the Northwest territories. Americans can use that land instead of ours. Do they even now how many of us they killed?
From a Southerner
Finally, someone got rid of those Natives. That ruling was dumb, good thing Jackson didn't listen. They wouldn't have lost so many people if they left before the deadline. Besides, we needed that land for its gold.
