The History of Florida By Alex and Andrew
First Seminole War
From 1817-1818, the United States Army invaded the Spanish part of Florida and fought against the Seminoles and their African American allies. Collectively, these battles came to be known as the First Seminole War.
Second Seminole War
Northern settlers were invading Tallahassee, which was Seminole settlement. In 1823, the governor offered the Seminoles a treaty, which was called the Treaty of Moultrie Creek. This treaty required the Seminoles to give up their land and move south. It also made them agree to stop hiding runaway slaves.
In 1855, the goal of the Americans was to track down the remaining Seminoles in Florida. The battle wasn't a bloody one. It ended with the United States letting the most resistant band of refugees to go West.
Third Seminole War
The Spanish-American War was between Spain and the U.S. What caused the war was provoked by Cuban patriots who demanded for independence from Spanish rule. The U.S supported Cuba's struggle of independence from Spain. As it ended, it established the independence of Cuba, made Puerto Rico and Guam surrender to the U.S, and allowed the U.S to purchase the Philippines Islands from Spain for $20 million. The war changed Tampa from a small town into a city because a lot of troops left from the ports in Tampa.
