General Info

This engraving from the War of 1812 depicted a practice that dated back to the American Revolution, when the British first incurred the wrath of Americans by enlisting Indians as allies. The Indians depicted were not from any specific tribe, but the image spoke to the growing ties between the Seminoles and the British from 1776 through the First Seminole War (1817-1818) -- ties did not endear the Seminoles to their American neighbors.
