In 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act into law, giving him authority to negotiate with South Eastern Native American tribes their removal to lands west of the Mississippi. With this act in place, Jackson was able to threaten and force tribes into signing treaties -- giving their land away forever.
