In the early nineteenth century, the United States was growing quickly. American Indian nations including the Cherokee had been living on the land that the white settlers wanted. Conflicts began as more and more white settlers moved onto American Indian land. Then the US government passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830 and in 1838 military officials forced the Cherokee on a dangerous and heartbreaking journey from their homeland to territory 800 miles away in what is now the state of Oklahoma. Their journey became known as the Trail of Tears.
