Battle of Okeechobee, illustration
19th-century illustration of the Battle of Lake Okeechobee. Architecture and Historic Conservancy.

While the scale and perspective are skewed, the illustration may fairly depict the final moments of the battle, when the Seminoles broke ranks. Overall, however, the rendering is more indicative of American propaganda than of the battle's actual results.
