When did the Second Seminole War begin?


(Apauly-Tustennuggee, ca. 1843, credit: HistoryMiami)

In 1830 President Andrew Jackson signed a law that became known as the Indian Removal Act.  The law required all Native Americans living east of the Mississippi River to move to Oklahoma.  This law affected the Seminole living here in South Florida, many of whom decided to fight back.  The fight between the Seminole and the United States government became known as the Seminole Wars.
