Andrew Jackson and Indian Removal

Higher Learning Question:

This policy resulted in the Trail of Tears, one of most tragic events in our country’s history to many of our citizens; however, I want you to focus on another aspect of the events.

What happened to this rich farm land in the deep south?
Who populated it?

What was the basis of the economy of the region?

As always, please write approximately 400 words for OP and  two responses cite your sources. I have given you several sources on the broad subject, but I caution you to focus on the questions I have asked.
