Southern Enemies

Southern influence reached the Black Seminoles in several ways, but perhaps most nefariously through U.S. Indian agents. Nominally, the government appointed these men to protect the interests of the tribe. The appointments were largely political, however, and they easily became enmeshed in North-South issues. In the Seminoles' case, the advantage seemed to go to the slaveholding interests.
