He struck at the economy, raiding villages, burning crops, confiscating food, horses, and slaves. In one raid, his men seized 90 head of cattle belonging to John Horse. In another, they destroyed Osceola's headquarters on the Wahoo Swamp, capturing 52 of the chief's black followers. Osceola escaped.
