Storyboard Description

United States gains Florida

Storyboard Text

  • The United States also had disputes along its southern border with Spanish Florida. After the War of 1812, the Seminoles in Florida continued to welcome runaway slaves from the United States.
  • Meanwhile, war with American Indians erupted in the South. Creek Indians, angry at American settlers for pushing into their lands, took up arms in 1813. A large force attacked Fort Mims on the Alabama River, destroying the fort and killing close to 250 of its defenders. 
  • The battle began on the morning of January 8, 1815. Some 5,300 British troops attacked Jackson's force of about 4,500. The British began marching toward the U.S. defenses, but they were caught on an open field. The British were cut down with  frightening speed.
