When Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act he forced the Cherokee to move and about one fourth of them died on the journey this journey became known as the Trail of Tears. The trail of tears was to move from Georgia (in this case) to Oklahoma.  It was not the name of the trail until many Indians died. They died due to exposure to cold weather, starvation, and diseases. They had to travel 1,000 miles on the journey.
