Andrew Jackson

Andrew Jackson

"Without union our independence and liberty would never have been achieved; without union they never can be maintained. ... The loss of liberty, of all good government, of peace, plenty, and happiness, must inevitably follow a dissolution of the Union."  --Andrew Jackson, Second Inaugural Address, 1833

In November 1828, Andrew Jackson succeeded John Qunicy Adams as President.  He was a frontiersman and Indian hater, and the change boded no good to the Cherokees.  Even though his life had been saved by a Cherokee at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, he ran for Presidency on a policy of Indian Removal.

By the end of Jackson's administration, almost all Indians in the east, including the Cherokee had been moved west of the Mississippi.  Thousands of Indians cheated out of their land, died during the forced migration, infamously known as "Trail of Tears."
