On the Seminole Indian Reservation, Barbara pointed me out for the warriors (I guess for the alligator mishap).
It appears that for 40 years the US Government tried to move the Seminole Indians from Florida to Oklahoma. The Seminoles did not want to go, and there was War. The US classified them as three separate wars ( I could put the dates here, but do you really care?). The Seminoles considered it one long war. Finally, the US said, after spending 50 million dollars, and losing 2000 soldiers, that most of the Seminoles had been killed or moved to Oklahoma, and declared the 3rd Seminole War over. The Seminoles position is that there were 840 of them still living in the Everglades, where the US couldn’t find them, and since no peace treaty was signed, they won the war. Sounds logical to me.
Time to mail our taxes and absentee ballots. In the Everglades, not much of a Postal system. They are only open 2 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the afternoon.
No cell phone reception. I guess they still use smoke signals.
