@dezzie,
Now in order to answer that, picture the Indian nations during this time. Get a map or look up a map in a book called "Native Americans" . There were several industries involved in different regions so you must become familiar with these various regions and the times involved. ALl that can be found on the internet.

@dezzie,
From: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p2959.html

PBS wrote:
Early in the 19th century, while the rapidly-growing United States expanded into the lower South, white settlers faced what they considered an obstacle. This area was home to the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chicasaw and Seminole nations. These Indian nations, in the view of the settlers and many other white Americans, were standing in the way of progress. Eager for land to raise cotton, the settlers pressured the federal government to acquire Indian territory.


Emphasis mine.
