In 1838, the Trails of Tears that forced the Indians out of the East was a deadly trail. I believe the Indian Affairs could have been handled differently without the cruelty and unjust freedom to the Indians. The Trail of Tears had inadequate food supply and bad weather that led to four thousand Cherokees to die, but that still was not enough for the whites. By 1828, President Jackson declared jurisdiction over Indians Affairs, but the Cherokees appealed the move to the Supreme Court to uphold their rights. Jackson wanted to open the Indian Territory to the whites, but the Indians would not give up. So Jackson proposed a removal of all the Indians who remained on the East land. By 1830, congress passed the Indian Removal Act, which provided transplanting of the Indian tribes in the East Mississippi. The Trail of Tears that established the Indian Territory became permanent for whites. By, 1836 the Indian Affairs was established. Many whites had respect for the Indians and felt that they could relate to white society. Even though the Indian tribes resisted whites and some whites resisted Indians. The Indians was very productive in agriculture and cotton. In Jackson eyes the Indians should be remove due to numerous diseases they encounter, so the whites want contact those diseases. The slavery system in the 1800's was both profitable and non-profitable. Slavery was profitable for great planters; it hobbled the economic development of the region as a whole. Some whites and abolitionists of the North and South saw slavery as being evil. Slavery was a business for economic necessity for others and enslaved, which they could not have escaped. Slaves were exploited by slave owners for cheap labor. Slaves shaped the South by their hard work and dedication to be free from slavery and economic stability. Slaves were a important part of the owner, slaves established social structure, social justice and norms that helped shaped the society for themselves and whites. Slavery in the South was unequal size of individual and unevenly distributed. The slaves were vital part of the economy and a major part in productive plantations. Slaves were punished with 20 lashes or killed, if the rise their hand against or lie to their master. As time prevailed it became harder for slaves to gain education and worth of dignity for themselves until later in the years. The slavery system grew rapidly because land owners and slave owners started moving North and West, but with less slaves.
