When Andrew Jackson declared war on the Seminole, he never envisioned battling a people who would become symbols of courage, loyalty and patriotism. Inspired by Chief Osceola, they and their Black allies fought an unjust war of greed and aggression. In the vast, alligator-infested swamps of the Everglades they confounded the U.S. Army.
Unable to win militarily, the Seminole were captured under flags of truce and transported to Oklahoma Territory.
They are the only tribe never to surrender or sign a peace treaty.
