spacer Seminole captives marched into the wilderness
spacer

This representation of white captives (most prominently a woman beseeching the heavens) was another convention in the period's depictions of border warfare. The scene was not representative of the Florida war, however, where there were few, if any, cases of whites held as captives. The Seminoles were not in a position to hold prisoners.
