The Trail of Tears"¦.everyone learns it in high school, but what does it actually mean? Why were the Native Americans forced from their land? Why did so many people hate the Native Americans, who did nothing to them?

When they reached their new land, battered and tired, many more Cherokees died of an epidemic spreading through the tribes. The newly arrive tribes also had to worry about the tribes who already settled the land, since they started conflicts with the tribes passing by their new land.President Jackson was probily the most prominent person who stood against then Native Americans.

He said that they should be moved west because of expansion. They were taking up good land that could be used by whites, aid many people in Washington. So, on August 23, 1838, the infamous Trail of Tears began to whites pleasure, and Native Americans horror.We have done many things over the years that we could be ashamed of, but I think that this one reaches the top of the list. We took people who were living in the same country as us, made them leave all their belongs, and force them to move to a new land, so that we could have room for whites to settle on their old land. I embarrassed by the fact that my country has done this, and I wish i could cut this part out of our history.
