In this panel and the one to its immediate right, note the barbaric, depersonalized quality of the black and Indian faces, in contrast to the more expressive, sympathetic
character of the white victims. In general, the depiction emphasizes the barbaric aggression of the blacks and Indians, hardly indicating that white settlers had for years engaged in their own depravities while encroaching on Seminole
lands. Of course this made sense, since the engraving was probably used to
drum up American support for the war.
