Origin of the Seminoles

The 1715 war between the Colony of South Carolina and the Yamassee and their allies resulted in the exile of this decimated peoples to Florida and the opening of the Yamacraw Bluffs to James Oglethorpe for the founding of the 13th colony, Georgia. Meanwhile the defeated Yamassee and their Catawba allies made their way to Florida, where, under the leadership iof Vacapuchassee (cow keeper) the core of the Seminole tribe was formed. The Seminole carried on the distrust for the Colonists well after the Revolution, fighting four more wars with the Americans from 1816-1854.

Sounafe Tustenuggee, Abraham

In 1897, Montgomery Folsom wrote in the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph a story about how the Seminole  leader, Abraham came to Florida. The story is intriguing, but also hard to believe- so many historic elements have been rolled into one event- but there may be a modicum of truth behind it. He states that Abraham was blackbirded (induced to run away) from a plantation in Alabama by John Murrell's men, whom he attributes to the guise of The Pony Club and taken to Florida for resale. Abraham slew his captors and ran to Florida to hide with the Seminole. He later returned to his Alabama plantation and aided in the escape of his sister and others. When Osceoloa met his sister he fell madly in love with her and married her. 

Abraham became a thorn in the side of the Americans, raiding settlers from his hidden lair at Abrahamtown in the swamps of Florida. Abraham in 1836 led an attack on Major Dade's 100 men at the Ouithlacoochee River, killing them all. This resulted in the most costly US war to date called both "The Creek War" and the "Second Seminole War". Abraham was defeated and sent west to Oklahoma.
