Asked in Native American History, Cherokee Indians
Why did whites pressure the government to force the Cherokee out of Georgia?
Out of greed for gold, that was found on Cherokee land in Georgia. The gold was first discovered sometime around 1827-1829 (it is unknown when gold was discovered). ALthough the Cherokee people-that lived in Georgia, had said that they had known about the gold since the 1600's. Research the topic-trail of tears, and then you'll find all the information you need. A very tragic story of what the Cherokee people went through.

What is a correct statement about Georgia regarding the gold rush of the late 1820s?
The Cherokee controlled most of the land where gold was found. .......................... In 1820, gold was discovered near Duke's Creek in White County, Georgia, on a belt that ran southwest into the Cherokee Nation. As word of the discovery reached Georgia's coast, men poured into the area. America's first gold rush began. Georgia increased pressure on the Cherokee to give up their land.
