how did the americans react the jackson’s native american policy?
Missionary societies who had invested their time and money teaching Indians to live with their white neighbors and accept Christianity lobbied Congress to oppose the act. It finally passed, but only by a one-vote margin, in September of 1830.
Southerners and farmers who shared the same ideas as Jackson were very happy with this move. This gave Georgia a very large amount of territory. The new territory gave them free range to the gold and new farming lands.
Many people thought of this as morally compromising for the country. Clearly what Andrew Jackson and the United States was wrong. They took the land, which people had lived and farmed on for many years, from the Native Americans.
