Florida Seminole Indian War __ "Florida in the early 19th Century was home to the Seminole Indians. The Seminole had bitterly opposed the coming of the white man. Raids were made against white settlements in Georgia, just across the Florida border. In 1818 General Andrew Jackson was sent to patrol the border with 800 regular troops and an additional 900 Georgia volunteers. Jackson wasted no time in asserting his authority. Seminole villages were burned to the ground. The Seminoles were chased all the way to West Florida, territory under Spanish control. Jackson took control of Seminole Forts as he went, inflicting punishment upon British and Spanish traders who had aided the Seminoles."
