From the Publisher"[In] a lively and informative work, Owsley and Smith describe the revolutionary activities in the Gulf South and their connection with the expansionist trends of Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe. This book does a thorough job of describing filibuster activities in both Florida and Texas, American efforts to seize Indian lands, operations against a free black fort in Florida, and Andrew Jackson's adventures in Florida."
—Journal of Southern History
"Filibusters and Expansionists adds a breath of fresh air to the history and historiography of antebellum foreign policy."
