it formed the way our society is today. If it weren't for that act, Manifest Destiny wouldn't have been accomplished, industrilization would have been prolonged, and Andrew Jackson wouldn't have been able to broaden the executive branch as much as he did.

The Indian Removal Act, signed by President Andrew Jackson, sought to appease southern states, particularly Georgia, by granting access to lands inhabited by the Five Civilized Tribes. The tribes included the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole. Some tribes moved peacefully in the Indian Territory, present day Oklahoma, and so,e of the forced migration led to the "Trail of Tears" for the Cherokee Tribe and a war with the Seminoles in which thousands were killed.

The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was signed into law by Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830. Basically, it allowed the President to reserve land West of the Mississippi for Indian reservations, so that white man could make room within current state borders.

Now, some tribes went peacefully; however, not all liked the idea of being removed from their homes. It was this act that lead to the brute force removal of the Cherokee tribe in 1838 and 1839 known as the "Trail of Tears."

The second Seminole War came into play in 1835. So, essentially, we saw many conflicts arising throughout the nation between white man and Indians of several tribes.
