This chapter examines the extent, if any, a Seminole strategy existed to check aggressive white advance into the Gulf Coast region from the period 1812 to 1858. The Florida Indians conducted a lengthy and valiant resistance in an effort to remain on their lands, and several reasons are attributed for their stout defiance. This chapter also identifies a number of factors, most beyond the control of the Seminole, which eventually sealed their demise.
