Seminole Wars

History of the Seminole Wars

After the American Revolution (1776 to 1783) the Treaty of Paris gave Spain control of Florida. The British evacuated, and Spanish colonists and American settlers, including escaped slaves, arrived. These settlers infringed on Seminole Territory and old conflicts, plus the haven for slaves, provoked the US Army into attacking. The First Seminole War took place in 1817, the second in 1835 and the third in 1855.

Old conflicts, combined with the safe-haven Seminoles provided black slaves, caused the U.S. army to attack the tribe in the First Seminole War (1817-1818), which took place in Florida and southern Georgia. Forces under Gen. Andrew Jackson quickly defeated the Seminoles.

The second Seminole War (1835-1842) came about after the Treaty of Payne's Landing, signed by a small number of Seminoles in May 1832, required Indians to give up their Florida lands within three years and move west. When the U.S. Army arrived in 1835 to enforce the treaty, the Indians were ready for war.

A Third Seminole War (1855-1858) broke out in 1855, when conflicts -- largely over land -- arose between whites and some Seminoles who remained in Florida.
