Worcester vs. Georgia
The natives were being pushed off their land, and didn't like that. They took this to the Supreme Court, to settle this conflict with Jackson. The Supreme Court ruled that the Cherokee nation was a "Sovereign" nation and Georgia could not interfere with the Cherokee. Jackson ignored the Supreme Court ruling, and signed the Indian Removal Act.
Indian Removal Act
Jackson ignored what the Supreme Court ruled and signed the Indian Removal Act. The Indian Removal act allowed the U.S. government to "exchange" the Indians land with less desirable land west of the Mississippi. The Indian Removal Act then led to the trail of tears, leading the Natives off of there land and onto a reservation
This political cartoon demonstrates what Andrew Jackson did to the Cherokee nation. Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal act, which made all the Natives move off their land, causing the Trail of Tears. This drawing also shows the Cherokee nation being destroyed and humiliated.
I view Andrew Jackson as a good president because he gave us suffrage, and he signed the Indian Removal Act, which will give us more land in the south. He also abolished the National bank, which favored the wealthy, and helped us with a lot of conflicts.
Andrew Jackson is a disgrace to the American nation, and he is a monster. We have lived on this land for more years than the U.S. has been a country. There is no reason we should move off of this land, and onto a reservation.
