The Second Creek War in West Florida, 1837–1854

America's Hundred Years' War

This chapter shows how violence between white Americans and the Creek persisted in Florida well into the 1850s. A number of Creek remained in the Florida panhandle, roaming the countryside, committing depredations, attempting to escape detection; other Creek fled deeper into Florida and joined the Seminole cause. From the American perspective, then, a little-known Second Creek War coincided with the more publicized Second Seminole War, both occurring in Florida from the 1830s into the 1850s. From the Indian perspective, native resistance to U.S. expansion had long characterized life in the Gulf South region—a story of unremitting conflict that began in the late eighteenth century and continued well into the nineteenth.
