Cherokee Removal

The first document elaborates on how the United States wanted to expand to the west
but could not since there were many tribes in the way. That was the main obstacle that was in
the way of the United States but they did not care because they were determined to do anything
in order to expand to the west. Andrew Jackson stated the sooner that the Indians were
removed the better it would be since it would prevent conflict if people encountered the Indians.
These documents have a lot of insight to offer. It gives us information of what America's purpose
was when they were doing these events.

This document talks about how wrong it is to degrade the colored people of the time. He
began ny naming other great empires that had slaves like the Romans. He later calls out the
people to give him proof of why we should put down the colored. He believed that this was the
reason for all of the empire's destruction. This is a great document to see someone else’s
perspective on the situation. This is how a lot of people see slavery, and it is true. Slavery is
such a wrong and not needed.
