Inscription. In the spring of 1830 Congress passed the Indian Removal Act providing the President with means to exchange the lands of the five civilized Indian nations of the Southeast for lands west of the Mississippi. On August 20, 1830 Andrew Jackson met in Franklin with the Chiefs of the Chickasaw nation to begin a series of treaties which removed the tribe to Oklahoma. “Sharpe Knife“ as the chiefs called Jackson, was the only U.S. President ever to attend an Indian removal council.
