  4. 4. The Trail of Tears was a forced relocation of Native Americans from their homelands to Indian Territory Quit
  5. 5. “ In the whole scene there was an air of ruin and destruction, something which betrayed a final and irrevocable adieu; one couldn't watch without feeling one's heart wrung. The Indians were tranquil, but sombre and taciturn. There was one who could speak English and of whom I asked why the Chactas were leaving their country. &quot;To be free,&quot; he answered, could never get any other reason out of him. We ... watch the expulsion ... of one of the most celebrated and ancient American peoples.” - Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America Quit

Out of 110 army troops only 3 survived, and with that the Second Seminole War had begun. Indian war parties raided militia supply chains. The U.S. government is estimated to have spent about $20,000,000 on the war, at the time an astronomical sum. Many Indians were forcibly exiled to Creek lands west of the Mississippi; others retreated into the Everglades. In the end, the government gave up trying to subjugate the Seminole in their Everglades redoubts and left less than 100 Seminoles in peace Seminole Resistance Quit

In 1838 the Cherokee Nation from their lands in Georgia to the Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma) in the Western United States, which resulted in the deaths of approximately 4,000 Cherokees.
