Who the..? Andrew Jackson, who was a hater of the indian tribes, commanded
the U.S. military and defeated a fraction of the Creek nation stealing
22 million acres of their land from southern Gerogia and central Alabama. He then took his troops and invaded the Seminoles territory in Spanish Florida getting more land. We give up! Now

Most members of the five southeastern nations had been relocated west, opening 25 million acres of land to white settlement and to slavery.
