FLORIDA SEMINOLE INDIAN WARS > back
I refer everyone to a Brief History of the Seminoles on the Seminole Nation Museum Website. It begins with Pre-history, then follow the links for the historical progression, Air for Removal, The Seminole Wars & Into the West.
More information on Who Are the Seminoles at the Tribal Historic Preservation Office Website. They provide some interesting information beginning with the Spanish Missions, Indian leaders Cowkeeper to Payne, to Micanopy to Billy Bowlegs and more.
See Wikipedia Seminole Wars for a more in depth overview.
Then a significant resource on the Seminoles can be found on the Florida Dept. of State, Seminole Wars Heritage Trails. Scroll down to the link, "Read the Florida Seminole Wars Heritage Trail online, or download..."
For more in depth research I suggest any and all related books written on the subject (see the Seminole War Reading List) along with records in the state archives. I will see what I can provide in this regard soon.
Note, links to outside websites open in a new tab so you don't lose your place on Grahique Du Jour
