spacer This site was made possible in part by a grant from the Summerlee Foundation and sponsorship from the SouthWest Alternate Media Project. The goal is to make an original contribution to U.S. history by documenting, for scholars and general audiences alike, the accomplishments of John Horse and the Black Seminoles. These maroon warriors, descendants of free blacks and fugitive slaves in the American South, led the largest slave revolt in American history, influenced Abraham Lincoln and the emancipation movement, and were the most successful black freedom fighters in the U.S. prior to the Civil War. Out west, they and their descendants played a key role in pacifying the Texas frontier as the famed Seminole Negro Indian Scouts. "Rebellion" is based on the best existing academic research combined with original scholarship. © 2005. Send comments and suggestions to site producer and author J.B.
