(p.1) Introduction
America's Hundred Years' War

William S. Belko

University Press of Florida

This chapter provides historical development of U.S. relations with the Seminole and the role of the Seminole leader Coacoochee. U.S. relations with the Seminole have too long been viewed through the lens of an ethnocentric American history. The chapters within this book reassess the traditional periods provided for U.S.-Seminole relations, and, in this process, advocate a new approach to how scholars look at the relationship between American expansion and the adverse effects of such expansion on the Seminole people. Each chapter, in its own way, lends support to the contention that the conflict between the young United States and the Seminole people transpired over a period of nearly a century, commencing in the decade prior to the American Revolution and ending in the decade before the U.S. Civil War.

Keywords:   Coacoochee, Seminole, Civil War, U.S.-Seminole relations, ethnocentrism, American Revolution
