    The Third Seminole War (1855–58)

    This struggle, also known as the Billy Bowlegs War, was the final clash of an intermittent guerilla conflict between the Seminole Indians of Florida and the United States. It had started in 1817 with fierce Seminole resistance to land-coveting white settlers encroaching from neighboring Georgia, then resumed in 1835. The U.S. had adopted a policy of removing Indians to “Indian Territory” west of the Mississippi. By the mid-1850s, more than 3,000 Seminole had been deported.
