To white settlers, these Native Americans were standing in the way of progress. This area was the native land of the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole nations. Hoping for more land to rear more cotton, settlers pressured the federal government to acquire these Indian territories. Andrew Jackson, born and raised in Tennessee, was an ardent supporter of Indian Removal. In 1814 he was the commander of a group of soldiers that defeated a group of warriors representing the Creek nation.
During the late 1800s and early 1900s, European imperialism radically changed the boundaries inside the continents of Africa and Asia incorporating them into their developing colonial empire. This was the same scenario for British imperialism in India. Over time, the colony and colonizer’s opinion on imperialism evolves, as both experience the downside and upside of colonialism.

Some of which included a high demand of wool which put many people, mostly farmers out of a job.
During the 17th century England was finally able to plant stable colonies. Although these first colonies were settled by the same people they had big differences too. Different social, economic, and geographic factors from the beginning and throughout the century, New England maintained a strong, communal identity while the Chesapeake remained widely scattered. Through the hot river valleys of the Chesapeake had a climate that facilitated staple crop plantations and disease, New England’s extreme climate made mass production of staple crops and the spread of disease difficult. The combination of poor free men, and later, indentured servants and slaves, resulted in a larger rich-poor gap in the Chesapeake.
Negative effects for Africa and India were that many died of new diseases that were brought over by the British, and Africans and Indians had no immunity to these diseases. The demand of cash crops caused a shortage of food which led to famines and even more deaths. Natives of both Africa and India fought in battle in order to defend their way in life.

“They allowed Moravian missionaries on their land in 1801. The missionaries taught the basics of European agriculture, domestic arts, the English language and Christianity. The missionaries saw the Cherokees as savages who had too much land. In 1802, Georgia gave up claim to the land the Cherokee’s lived on and gave the claim to the federal government in exchange for a promise to move the Cherokee out of Georgia.” (Indian Country Diaries) At that time, the government didn’t keep that promise. During this time a sad point in American history occurred known as the The Trail of Tears.
