Throughout the history of the United States we have seen a huge clash of cultures between the European settlers and the Indians. It is obvious that the Indian people were stripped of everything they had, and forced to leave the land they cherished and lived on. One of the most important times to recall regarding this clash is the day of May 28, 1830, the day the Indian Removal Act was passed. This one law that was passed effectively allowed congress, and the president of the United States (Andrew Jackson) to begin negotiations for Indian land in the southern part of the county, in an effort to start moving the Indian people westward. The desire for land was the primary reason for Indian removal, and in the early 1600’s English settlers established colonies at Jamestown, Plymouth, and other locations.
