The Indian Removal Act had many long lasting effects. First, to enforce the Indian Removal Act, Andrew Jackson would have to diobey a direct order from the Supreme Court. Andrew Jackson went through with it anyway and forced the Native Americans to leave their home. I think that had a long lasting effect on the Supreme Court. When people saw that Jackson, the president, didn't care about what the Supreme Court issued then they wouldn't either. The Supreme Court must have been powerless for a long time because of Jackson. Also it was very unfair to the Native Americans. People forget that the land belonged to the natives long before the settlers showed up. To make the many native people move from their homeland isn't right. Still, they had to walk the trail of tears where thousands of natives died from starvation, diesease, and other factors. When people saw how the Native Americans were being forced away the might have decided that the Native Americans were savage. They became afraid of the Native Americans and pressured the federal government to bother the natives more.

There were severe effects of the Indian Removal Act of 1830 that hurt the Native American population greatly. First, in order to understand the effects of the act, you have to understand what the act is and why it was put into law. Basically, the act was put into law due to the elongated tension that had occurred between the Native Americans and the white settlers. Since the beginning of the 1800s, the white settlers had been trying to push the Native Americans west so that they could use the land for their own purposes. One of the most well-known disputes between the Native Americans and white settlers was between the Cherokee and the people of Georgia. For many generations, Georgia had been trying to force the Cherokee to move. Then when they resisted they went to court to argue that they should be able to stay. However, they gained no support from the president, Andrew Jackson. As a result, Jackson persuaded Congress to pass the act, and the Indian Removal Act was passed in 1830.

The effects of the act were very brutal. One eminent effect was the Trail of Tears, which was the ten year period in which thousands of Native Americans were forced west of the Mississippi. Consequently, many Native Americans died due to the harsh weather, diseases, and famine. Another effect of the act was that once the Native Americans arrived to their new homes they were forced to start all over again. When they were forced to leave, many of the Native Americans were forced to leave without notice, and they had to leave with only the clothes on their backs. Once they got to the Indian Territory, they had to rebuild themselves as a society on unfamiliar lands. In general, the Indian Removal Act of 1830 had lasting effects on the Native American population.

I think that Andrew Jackson and the white settlers should have been more considerate of the Native Americans. The whole purpose of the act was based on the greed for land, and the well being of its inhabitants was ignored. If Congress, Andrew Jackson, and the white settlers had cared more for the Native Americans then the effects of the act would not have been so severe.

The Indian Removal Act was when Andrew Jackson made a deal with the Native American settlers to move away. He told them to move they could have all of the west if the white settlers could have their land in the east. All of the white settlers really wanted the eastern land for planing crops, cotton, and food. This all happened between 1814 and 1824. There were many effects of the Indian Removal Act. One was Jackson "pursued the policy of removing Native Americans from good farming land". The Native Americans didn't have any good land for growing crops or farming. Jackson kicked them out of that kind of land, and let the white settlers have all of it.

In my opinion I think that the Indian Removal Act was mean. Like they should not have made the Indians move all the way to the west just because the white settlers wanted the eastern land to themselves. It was real selfish of them. But also, it was mean because the Indians had to leave their homes because people didn't want them there.

The Indian Removal Act, part of a United States government policy known as Indian removal, was signed into law by President Andrew Jackson on May 26, 1830.He Removal Act was strongly supported in the South, where states were eager to gain access to lands inhabited by the "Five Civilized Tribes". In particular, Georgia, the largest state at that time, was involved in a contentious jurisdictional dispute with the Cherokee nation. President Jackson hoped removal would resolve the Georgia crisis. The Indian Removal Act was also very controversial. While Native American removal was, in theory, supposed to be voluntary, in practice great pressure was put on Native American leaders to sign removal treaties. Most observers, whether they were in favor of the Indian removal policy or not, realized that the passage of the act meant the inevitable removal of most Indians from the states. Some Native American leaders who had previously resisted removal now began to reconsider their positions, especially after Jackson's landslide re-election in 1832.

Adding onto my previous post, I'm just gonna say some more things.
Another huge effect was the Trail of Tears. That was the trail that the Native Americans took when moving west of the Mississippi River. They had to leave their ancestral homelands because of bribes and deals. They did not want to leave, but they kind of had to. During the Trail of Tears, many women, men, and children died on the way to their new homelands. "The president of our nation practically declared war and unjustly forced people from their homelands. Is this job of our president to take force innocent people from their land for no reason other than their heritage?"

Personally, I would hate to have to travel the Trail of Tears. It seems like it must have sucked to go through all of that just because your president wanted you to leave so he could take your land.
