Jackson, The Removal of Native Americans and The Bank Veto

  • Jackson’s concept of democracy did not extend to the Native Americans; his sympathy was for land-hungry citizens who wanted Native American lands
  • He believed the most humane viable solution was to compel Native Americans to leave their traditional homelands & resettle west of the Mississippi , so he supported the Indian Removal Act of 1830 and ignored the court’s decision in Worcester v. Georgia when Marshall affirmed the rights of tribes to remain free from the authority of state govts
  • After the May 1838 deadline passed, when only 2,000 of 17,000 Cherokees abided by the treaty, President Martin Van Buren ordered General Winfield Scott to enforce the treaty and thousands of Native Americans moved to Indian reservations during what became known as the “Trail of Tears”
  • The removal was never complete, some tribes especially resisted removal, such as the Seminoles who fought and resisted for years
  • Jackson vetoed the second bank’s charter because of his distrust for banks or perhaps b/c of his business failure & debt as a result of the Panic of 1797
