Indian Removal Act was a law passed in 1830 under President Andrew Jackson which authorized president to negotiate with Native Americans in Southern states for removal to federal territory west of Mississippi river after getting paid for their lands. Although legally the removal had to be voluntary, it was used to coerce Native Americans to agree to removal. This even led to war between Americans and Seminoles. The war is called The second Seminole war.
