At the beginning of the 1830s, nearly 125,000 Native Americans lived on millions of acres of land in GA, Tenn., Alabama, N. Carolina and Florida.   Working on behalf of white settlers who wanted to grow cotton on the Indians’ land, the fed. gov. forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Miss. River. This difficult and deadly journey is known as the Trail of Tears.

"Trail of Tears" - The Cherokee people where forced to move west of the Mississippi River, by the settlers. Over of the Cherokee population died during this event, and many of the settlers disagreed with this policy.
