    Estimates range from 40,000 to 1,600,000.

    There were many undocumented deaths and mass burials along the way - undocumented deaths included the US Army "thinning down" the population moving across the lands for better efficiency. They would target the elders, young children (infants, mainly) and anyone who was either ill or lame. These murders were all undocumented by the history books, but not by our people.

    The answer is over 100 million Native American human beings were wholesale slaughtered by that psychotic SOB Andrew Jackson.
