At first, white expansion and Indian removal were haphazard, spontaneous events. But in the 1830s, the U.S. government developed a methodical policy in which it forcefully, and at times even brutally, uprooted the remaining eastern tribes and marched them to what would eventually become remote reservations in the American West.
