President Andrew Jackson was the one who was in power when the Indian Removal Act was signed on May 28, 1830. The law authorized the president to negotiate with southern Indian tribes for their removal to federal territory west of the Mississippi River in exchange for their lands.They stoled our LAND! The Removal Act was strongly supported in the South, especially in Georgia which was the largest state in 1802 and was involved in a jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokee. President Jackson hoped that removal would resolve the Georgia crisis. Besides the Five Civilized Tribes, additional people affected included the Wyandot, the Kickapoo, the Potowatomi, the Shawnee, and the Lenape.The Removal Act paved the way for the forced expulsion of tens of thousands of American Indians from their land into the West in an event widely known as the "Trail of Tears," a forced resettlement of the Indian population. Jackson viewed the demise of Indian tribal nations as inevitable, pointing to the advancement of settled life (Pillage, Murder, Rape, etc.) and demise of tribal nations in the American northeast. Indian tribes had become nearly extinct, Indian hunting grounds had been replaced with family farms, and state law had replaced tribal law. If the Indians of the south were to survive and their culture be maintained, they faced powerful historical forces that could only be postponed. He dismissed romantic portrayals of lost Indian culture as a sentimental longing for a simpler time in the past, stating that "progress requires moving forward. Until this very day, nothing has changed in the way the Native American Indian is treated!!!
On April 24, 1830, the Senate passed the Indian Removal Act by a vote of 28 to 19. On May 26, 1830, the House of Representatives passed the Act by a vote of 101 to 97. On May 28, 1830, the Indian Removal Act was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson.
Andrew Jackson's photo needs to be removed from the 20 dollar bill for allowing this disgraceful GENOCIDE to take place!!! One of our Native American Indian forefathers photo or Native American Indian symbol of UNITY needs to replace his on the 20 dollar bill to REMIND ALL of the sad, disgraceful, massacre, and heart-wrenching way the United States did to start and grow this country America.
