Product Description
This reading explores the infamous Trail of Tears, the forced removal of thousands of Cherokee (and other) Native Americans from the southeastern United States to reservations in Oklahoma after the passage of Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act. The reading provides interesting details, context, and pictures, as well as a primary source account of the march. The activity includes comprehension questions but also thought-provoking discussion questions, a creative writing prompt, and the analysis of a primary source political cartoon.

This activity picks up with Jackson already President. For more context on Jackson as a person, leader, and President, I recommend buying my "Andrew Jackson Becomes President". I also have a DBQ about Indian Removal and the Trail of Tears.
