  • That's it Alexa !

  • I guess you all have heard about The Civil War : between 1861 and 1865 the southern slave states formed the Confederate States of America and declared secession.
  • But, what can you tell me about the Seminole Wars also named the Florida Wars ?
  • There were conflicts between African Americans and Native Americans , called the seminoles, and the US army.
  • That's correct !
  • Florida belonged to the seminoles who were under the spanish government's protection. However, the US wanted this land. So they started wars againts the Native Americans to get it.
  • In 1858, after three conflicts, they finally won Florida.
  • There were three wars : the first one took place between 1817 and 1818; the second one, between 1835 and 1842; and the third and last one, between 1855 and 1858.
