The “Trail of Tears” was the Indians that were forced to leave there because gold was discovered and white men wanted more land. Then President Andrew Jackson told the Indians to leave their land they called it the Indian removal. About 2,000 Cherokee Indians left their land. The Indians had to walk from Georgia to Oklahoma. On the way nearly half of the people died by diseases. The Indians were treated badly. The Indians couldn’t and stop walking, and they ate little food. They settled in the west part of the Mississippi River. In the west, white men took over Indian traditional and farming land. Some other tribes fought back. Then the Indians lived in the west by the end of the 1800s. I think the Trail of Tears was a hard journey. The indians were'nt the only ones that were tired the settlers also needed to go on the hard journey.
