A small group of Cherokees from Georgia voluntarily migrated to the Indian Territory. The remaining Cherokees in Georgia resisted the mounting pressure to leave. In 1838, U.S. President Martin Van Buren ordered U.S. troops to remove the Cherokee Nation. The troops gathered the Cherokees and marched them and other Native Americans from North Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama along what is now known as “The Trail of Tears.” Approximately 5,000 Cherokees died on their way to Indian Territory.
