Summary "The Seminole Wars were the longest, bloodiest, and most costly of all the Indian wars fought by this nation. Seminole War authorities John and Mary Lou Missall examine not only the wars that were fought between 1817 and 1858 but also the events leading up to them and their place in American history. Employing extensive research that makes use of diaries, military reports, and archival newspapers, they shed new light on the relationship among the wars, the issue of slavery, prevalent attitudes toward Native Americans, and the quest for national security."--Jacket.
