    Honoring John Horse, Black Seminole, and the 1000 black slaves who rose up in Florida, burned 21 of the richest plantations in the world at the time to the ground and joined John Horse in fighting the U.S. Army to a standstill. The Black Seminoles won their freedom on the battlefield; 20 years later, Abe Lincoln used their "battlefield freedom" documents as his legal precedent to sign the Emancipation Proclamation.

    I was looking at Destee's thread about posts you mean to make and forgetting them (some such). Remembered this one where I meant to give a link to the history of John Horse since the 2nd Seminole War (or Negro War as some historians call it) has been carefully hidden from us:
