Individuals, it is 16, White Americans on food assistance and 10, Black Americans on food assistance. But more importantly, out of ,, White Americans, 8.

And again, this is food stamps, not overall welfare plans. Snap is but one welfare program. TANF is also a very big program. In , 1,, people received welfare checks. In there were 36,, Black Americans. Of ,, White Americans, 0. But what really matters is income. Now those are statistics you can take to the bank. Oh wait, I forgot WIC. In there were 36,, Black Americans and 5. Of ,, White Americans, 3. The most failed group are White Americans based on racism, racial preferences, access and opportunities White Americans should be receiving the least.

But, thanks because it gives an even greater prospective. This is from page 6 of your own research. The incidence of poverty among African Americans and Hispanics exceeds that of whites by several times. Although blacks represent only Poverty rates for all groups mentioned above were statistically unchanged from to , as were the total numbers estimated as poor. Another finding of the study is that the distribution of benefits no longer aligns with the demography of poverty.

African-Americans, who make up 22 percent of the poor, receive 14 percent of government benefits, close to their 12 percent population share. White non-Hispanics, who make up 42 percent of the poor, receive 69 percent of government benefits — again, much closer to their 64 percent population share. But here you are attempting to justify White folks getting the same HANDOUTS that Black folks are receiving because of the institutionalize, generational racism and disenfranchisement by our own government against us.

No, it is not. Neither all White or all Black poor. But a larger percentage of the Black poor used it than the White poor if you have to make the comparison.

You can make statistics say anything you want by in fact leaving out that the reason a greater percentage of the Black population receives Food Assistance per their demo benefits is because they also represent the greatest percentage of unemployed in their demo. Additionally, Blacks are poorer due to disenfranchisement which is old news, and the discussion of who gets the most assistance is a straw man that detracts from why so many of our citizens NEED this assistance in the so called Greatest Country in the World….

Poor whites receiving SNAP are the largest group. Bottom line, per capita, Blacks still receive more in this country. And disenfranchisement works as an excuse for the first generation.

But not for multigenerational users. Some personal accountability still plays a role. Same for White multigenerational welfare abusers. Disenfranchisment works until reparations. And there is no excuse when the population that makes up Republican talking points , blame the victim. Fact there are more white folks than the total black population, so how do you figure black people receive more.

Per capita is bull crap, see my comment on the prison population above. And where is this abuse? Much like voter fraud it is a figment of white folks imagination. JaimeAndresPretell—Blacks still receive more in this country.

Can you tell me what recompense did the American government afford American Blacks citizens for Jim Crow laws, When was America held accountable for the Crimes and disenfranchisement she committed against American Black citizens. Reparations were done and are being done.

But it is still a help as much as you help yourself process. Fact is, plenty of other disenfranchized groups come here with nothing and are still doing better.

Yes, Jim Crow was horrible. And those that were born into it should sue for reparations. PLenty of other groups have cme in since then with zilch in their pocket and are still doing better. That wealth just as the wealth created from slavery has been passed down thru generations of White Americans. Jim Crow was from , a mere 48yrs ago, genius. JaimeAndresPretell myplacegrill Name the groups who America disenfranchised by law as they collected taxes from them and gave No representation of decades.

Affirmative Action is your reparations. Many have lost everything and rebuilt. Go look at the great depression. THe kids of Holocaust rurvivors or of Japanese internment camps did not get paid. And sorry, but the South was not the only engine of the US economy and the north actually ammased more wealth. Slavery or no slavery, wealth would be there. Know more about the law and history than you do, and without your myopia.

Heywoodmyplacegrill The largest benefactors of Affirmative Action program are the White women in your photo. When were they oppressed as American Black citizens were. Just like those White folks who cling to their guns and religion. What a fuckin dunce. The women in that picture are all Native American. Fucking moron whining for pity. Every disenfranchised demo in the US has been made whole through reparations except those of African descent brought here through the slave trade.

We need more fuckers like you to continue to be cowards and post online, and not shoot us down like DOGS in the street because the laws says you can….

Holocaust survivors had nothing to do with the US. Never the victims… I was there for Jim Crow. And what side were you on? Blacks use stand your ground more in Florida than Whites do. Go look up actual stats. Some injustices systemic, but some self perpetuated by anti-culture mentalities. You keep on being a racist bastard claiming the plight of black folk is their fault.

Those of us that live the plight recognize oppressors for who they are. To make his sorry ass feel better. No more time on this clown with the faulty statistics.

I grew up in Peru to a creole family. You whine too much. You were 6 when Jim Crow ended. Your parents had a legitimate gripe. You so much less. You have stuff today your parents never imagined, and poor in other countries never imagine. Typing on a computer crying about your opportunities. PROVE the statistics wrong. And while you are at it, show me the numbers of Black people being locked up who used SYG. How about go back to Peru and spout your bullshit? Fuck you and your worldview.

Compiling numbers of all SYG cases in Florida that were not guilty in some form or another right now. In Mexico and Peru Professor Gates explores the almost unknown history of the significant numbers of black people—the two countries together received far more slaves than did the United States —brought to these countries as early as the 16th and 17th centuries, and the worlds of culture that their descendants have created in Vera Cruz on the Gulf of Mexico, the Costa Chica region on the Pacific, and in and around Lima, Peru.

JaimeAndresPretell Unemployment and poverty are indeed two different things. But in areas where unemployment rates are higher, so are poverty rates. I have no idea why people keep throwing Affirmative Action up as a savior for Blacks. Have you read this? And I already addressed poverty in a different post.

Or as your a link in your article says: But it is a rung that has to be grabbed. The fact is, there is an anti-culture that has developed in both American Black and Latino poverty cultures where distrust of the system has led to less educational aspirations. A sense of immediate entitlement and quick fixes, like long term dependence on welfare are also problems.

This also exists in White poverty cultures but to a lesser degree. There is a reason the majority of recipients of Black Affirmative Action are foreign Afro-Diasporics or their children. It is also why White women are the highest recipients overall. They already had the education aspirations and when the doors opened they reached. It has even led to a rift between middle class and poor African American communities as the income gap grows bigger. Go look up each case of SYG in Florida, for example.

Separate the cases where the deceased or injured person that SYG was used against was a person in a commission of a crime, or with a weapon, versus the ones that were just arguing.

Once you have corrected for those facts you will see that the numbers are much more similar. The fact of the matter is that SYG against people committing felonies even before the actual assault, have had higher rates of success.

It just happens that more Black people try to rob, burglarize or rape White people than vice versa. There could be many causes for this, from racism, to opportunity more Whites available , but that is a statistical fact. That means more Whites are going to defend themselves from violent Black crime than the other way around. And it means more successful SYG cases. Take out race of the deceased, and just look at successful SYG cases and you will find that Blacks have used it as successfully as Whites when they were in the presence of some type of criminal activity.

Go look at the raw numbers with that in mind. The fact that whites represent the largest population in America and that more whites than blacks receive food stamps makes statistical sense.

What does not make statistical sense, and should be a wake-up call to the black community, is that the percentage of blacks on welfare as compared to their total population is proportionately higher than that of whites same goes for the prison populations as broken down into racial groupings and populations.

BlackheywoodHeywood dinbomaniq Your history lesson is irrelevant to the fact that more blacks, per their total population, are on welfare and in prison; facts are facts regardless of what group started out on welfare. SarahReedore whites than blacks receive food stamps makes statistical sense.

There is no reason for the welfare roles to be dominated by White folks. White Americans have received nothing but Affirmative Action since this nation was stolen, furthermore White Americans has NEVER accomplished anything as a group without oppressing, discriminating and disenfranchising other folks, predominately Black folks. SarahReed BlackheywoodHeywooddinbomaniq It is NOT irrelevant because when a group has access and opportunities there is No reason for them to depend on the Government as long as White Americans have done.

My question to you: How many more generations do black people need to get their act together? The keys to that success are how much emphasis they put on faith, family, and education, which is sorely lacking in the black community.

Would it make you happier, and the black community more successful, if we disallowed white people to receive welfare? You people had centuries of a head start over Blacks now an idiot like you post your ignorance. Give me a break. If you use a US population of ,, and a SNAP benefit base of 47,,, the approximate numbers rounded to nearest million break out as such:.

Now match those numbers against the unemployment rates of 7. Much easier to blame whites than it is to take responsibility and accountability for your own success in life.

Thank you for your post, atodds. Faith Walker was hoping that her audience is too stupid to understand the difference between aggregate numbers vs. Therefore, these Black women are much more likely to become dependent on various welfare programs like food stamps, section 8 housing, Medi-acid, Life Line phones, etc. So, where is this crap about a huge population of White Welfare Queens coming from again???

Minority women in particular are far more likely than their male counterparts to have used food stamps. The gender-race participation gap is also wide among Hispanics: Among whites, the gender-race gap is smaller.

With all due respect to Ms. A study conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that Among African-Americans the rate nearly tripled, with 72 percent of black children relying on a single parent. Fact is, Black defendants invoke SYG 2. Not racist at all. I am of mixed ancestry, voted for Obama, was a democrat and have become independent. The stats speak for themselves.

Most recent census demographics African American population- Get off your lazy, chalky butts and join the workforce. Stop making excuses for these underachieving, government dependant viral grubs. Putting it off is just as fine … remain enslaved by your government. You niqqers are f-cking idiots! Whenever I see one of you knuckledragging apes I think of this song and hope for more rockfish! Pew research conveniently added in S. While we ALL know and acknowledge that S.

If just this one point in their research is wrong, can ANY of their research be trusted? Been listening to this same issue since Same recessions 90s snd Same drugs same crimes.

Scattered housing now and one more amnesty should fix it. In 79 there was very little of this and I could live on a pretty basic salary at a factory.

Now the Government has ruined it with good intentions and a need for votes. Keep fighting each other the rich and politicians dont care. They ship the jobs away and send thier kids after them.

Then they close the gate. The thing is, is that racism is still a reality for black people in this country, no matter how accomplished and responsible they are. Also, you can not even compare what happened to black people with the Irish, Chinese, and Italians—for one thing, they came to America of there own free will—they were NOT kidnapped form their native land and forced to come here, then held back by nearly years of forced slavery and vicious oppression from virtually everywhere they turned.

Afrocentrism and White Nationalism are not even the same damn thing—-there have always been white folks who hated black people because they were encouraged to,to dehumanize us and to justify enslaving us. And to completely leave out the fact that systemic racism has a hell of a lot to do with the state that black people are in is pretty damn disingenuous on your part. There are no genetic differences between us that support the theory that we are inferior, which is the reason you discriminate against us.

You are afraid of us. That is why you resort to character assassination. It was the black tribes who sold the conquered black tribes to Muslims in the slave trade — back when slavery was legal worldwide. Black people owned and profited from black slaves. Rather than take responsibility for their own actions or lack thereof, the race-baiters blame da white man for their own self inflicted ills. To blame white racism for the fate of the lazy black population is ridiculous — especially when whites voted in a black president; black mayors run cities; black men and women own their own businesses and are in charge of corporations.

I do not feel guilty for slavery. Get over it — you are responsible for your own welfare … no one owes you for anything … your racism in blaming whites for your condition is a game that losers play to make excuses for their own missteps …. Get with the program and get an education; work hard and pay your dues — quite blaming others for your shortcomings.

Blaming someone else, or some other race for your individual failure is nothing more than an excuse. You have more opportunity in this country USA to make something for your family and posterity than any other country in the world. Thousands upon thousands of impoverished people from all races have done exactly that. Others have done it and so can you — but no one else is going to do it for you.

Are you really that Stupid? No matter what kind of twist you try to put on it. Your Struggle is from lack of education, Lack of being accountable for your own actions and lack of wanting to better yourself as a Human being. Damn you fukkers are stupid but that goes along with being a racist.

Your entire existence in America is based on lies and revising history to make low lifes and miscreants like your race look good.

Sure there is work to do, but whining and crying about racism will never solve the problem. And sorry, DNA does not carry slavery effects in your genetics. So, at most you can say that your culture still has effects from that slavery. And you can fight your cultural hangups. Afrodiasporic populations in other countries that were enslaved did not choose to go there. Nor did Native groups who were enslaved and had their lands taken away.

Trayvon Martin got himself killed for assaulting someone. Marissa Alexander fired in the direction of two children. The only one you have a point of is Jordan Davis, and the guy got convicted that killed him. Afrocentrism and White Nationalism are exactly the same damn thing. Ethnophobia has existed through out time, but racism has not. Nor is it unique to people who now call themselves White. A concept that did not exist in ancient history.

Nor was slavery started in European nations. Where do you think the name slave comes from? Slavs, Eastern Europeans, being enslaved by Ottomans. Read the whole article and get back to me. And try not to spit out too many strawmen. I said certain populations distrust the educational system in an endemic way.

And that is true. And, by the way, being of partial African ancestry myself, I do care about educational problems in Afrodescent populations, have mentored kids, and do work for solutions. You can take the other black racists with you. I feel no guilt for your condition — the fault lies solely with you and what you do.

You really believe white people owe you something because of your stupid racism? You come to a Black website and tell Black people how you feel. You asshles are jokes and prove with your unintelligent and ignorant postings. Ayala your people are ingrates.

Can you prove you are an American citizen? I actually feel bad for you guys and should let you go on believing your fairytale beliefs. The biggest problem with welfare is that it saps the human spirit. He used to be a hard worker for an AC company. He hurt his back and got temporary disability.

His back seems to be OK when he splits his own firewood and goes hunting. His wife is now also on welfare and pain pills … a truly pathetic situation … unlimited welfare destroys the spirit and enslaves people to the government plantation.

If my friend, who is white, had to find work he could do it. Welfare and other taxpayer help should not be unlimited. Many, many people of all races have pulled themselves off the government plantation and created great wealth for themselves and family. You have to make sure its coming from a good source. Its black folks who take more fs per percentage. Sure their numbers will be higher as they are more people. Asians are the only ones that under represent their numbers and black folks over represent their numbers the most.

Thanks for reminding me there are some very unhappy white men with little dicks to match their little brains. Sucks to be you! Why is it that when we blacks are told that we are acting outside of our respective proportion to race that some weak minded negro counters with teh white man the white man. If whites use Stop countering to make it seem like its not that bad when it IS.

The more access and opportunity afforded to a group. OTHO any form of government aide American Black citizens receive have been for 50yrs at best since LBJ Great Society, prior to that Black Americans received any assistance from the government, despite paying taxes and receiving little to no representation.

These things must be looked at thru the historical context you seem to have ignored. I do agree that White populations have used Welfare longer than Black populations, and that Black populations have had a much longer period of lack of resources. But economic and social oppression is not genetic. Vast populations of the US lost everything through the Great Depression, and other economic quagmires, such that there was no economic inheritance.

TO this day, multiple families have ended up bankrupt and homeless. Genetic Inheritance While some effects in growth, might play a role due to lack of nutrition in the mother, overall most populations have their children born healthy, so that plays little role. The biggest inheritance to play a role, is the mental inheritance of memes passed on by family and community.

Yes, the exploitation that the African American community suffered is horrible. But the damage in cultural memes, seems to be much worse. One of the posts mentions a Kentucky town that has the highest incidence of Welfare in the nation. It is a predominantly White population. The level of lack of education, and cyclical recurrence of dependence of welfare, as well as a lack of ambition to improve and succeed is terrible.

It is just another cautionary tale of how lack of education and welfare reliance can cripple a community. Just like that community, many Black communities with low education trends and high welfare reliance are falling into similar cyclical trends.

They had a mentality of struggling against all odds and always progressing. The Tilden Hayes betrayal is a big reason a lot of that was lost. The Black Power movement, and Welfare is another. While prior movements of self improvement focused on economic growth and education, the new current focused on feelings of being owed something, and Black pride for Blackness itself instead of pride in individual or community accomplishments.

Today, while the Black middle class keeps on progressing and widening the chasm between themselves and poor Blacks. You say Welfare is owed to the Black community, but you are only owed what was yours, not what was taken from your ancestors. But assistance that does nothing to promote growth and just creates assistance addicts, who just seek more ways to rely on that assistance, hurts the community, whether Black or White, and it is not helping the poor Black communities grow.

You can fantasize about lost racial empires of the past all you want, but it will not put food on the table, nor will over reliance of welfare ever create economic independence. Bottom line, until these issues are addressed, Poor Black communities will still struggle, even if all institutions are racism free, and give equal opportunity to equally qualified candidates.

Failure to provide a stable, two parent home environment is the primary reason for cultural decay. Lack of involved, responsible role models is a recipe for disaster.

It is refreshing to find a black man willing to embrace reality. Unfortunately, far too many blacks are anxious to blame other factors for the cultural decay, when in fact it the problem is easy to identify. This black prosecutor speaks the truth……. Lake County prosecutor says lack of morals, loss of family behind black crime. This black author knows the score. It can be assumed 98 percent of blacks never heard of him…….. They are at greater risk of low academic performance and behavioral problems and may experience parental conflict and residential instability as well.

In and gun homicide was the leading cause of death among black teens. Young black males die from gun violence at a rate 2. Gun injuries are suffered by black teens at a rate ten times higher than white teens.

You must be white. The system is designed to alienate the man from the process. Not illegal jobs, but sometimes under the table or they may not meet eligibility requirements. But white folks and Hispanics and others are very rarely denied those services.

If many Americans were killing people and abusing human rights, then they would spend that money. Just to keep the playing field fair. I am a mother of 4 on food stamp, I am hispanic it does not matter what color one or race, you can find your self in a bad situation at any time specially if One its working clase all it takes its to loose your job and your husband and… well getting ahead its sometimes luck, you heard sucess story , I want to be one, I as many others dont like to rely on food stamp, no matter how hard your work its hard to be totally dependant the cost of food its so high too, I exercise and dont eat any process food, I cook all my meals to be healthy and save money, I think the food stamp need to be regulated and people only aloud to by whole food, nothing microwave, the best thing people can do to give back is to eat healthy, because the bigger problem is the cost of treaments of illness that can be prevented America is the only country I know where poor are fat….

In that sense, you should use it fully. I am a lawyer now, but many years ago, I ended up surviving with church charity packets which were priced low but with essential food needs.

It helped me through a harsh time until I was able to heal and be mobilized by the military. A crutch to help heal is quite different than a permanent crutch handed from generation to generation.

But if you get addicted to the pain killers, then you never heal. You will be back on your feet, off welfare, and there is no shame in you using it in your time of need. Blacks require a disproportionate amount of social assistance. The reason blacks need help is because of being discriminated against in the job market and society in general.

In so-called racist America we have black millionaires in the entertainment communities, black political leaders and business owners. The only racism I see in real life comes from many black people.

Non-Hispanic whites are So showing a greater black unemployment rate than a white one to suggest blacks are underusing SNAP relative to whites and to their supposed need for it is a flawed assertion, anyway. Its a different question. One is a statement about the population of people on the program, the other is a statement of how many of different segments of the overall population makes use of the program.

The answer is no surprise: You lump us all in the same boat and that is where all the racism comes in. Except when talking about the blacks who score well on them, right??

Faith where in the world did you get your numbers. Please give us your source because these are way off what census has concluded. DanMiller8 Good luck getting a reply! Which means whites are over a third UNDERrepresented in food stamp recipients, and blacks are represented at nearly double their percentage of the population. PernellParham Are you really trying to prove him wrong Pernell?

I challenge you to find an example in which black people are actually advantaged in society, instead of just citing affirmative action, which has actually leveled the playing field in college admissions. Here are some statistical facts: A black man that has not been incarcerated is STILL less likely to land a job than a white man who has been incarcerated. The disproportionate national average makes a black person 3-times as likely to get arrested on drug charges, although both races have the same rate of drug use.

Some states target blacks more than others. The goal of affirmative action was to give blacks a better chance of occupational success by mitigating racism in our school system and job market. These are just a few stats. Institutional racism plays a big role in black people being disadvantaged. JohnW, thanks for liking my comment.

I am so sick of racist pigs making comments about us that only pertain to a small percentage. One black teacher, but in every predominantly black neighborhood there are majority white teachers, principals and administration. So many incidences of racism but all we hear about is black on black crime.

What about white on black crime over the last years? Probably for drug laws overall, as a matter of fact. But I did the math on this one time out of curiosity. I dunno if that makes you feel better or not, but the correctional system is not flooded with black people solely due to drug laws. Black slavery was mandated by law. No other race was enslaved through political mandates. A person who was a slave also had their children become slaves.

Slavery in Africa was totally different. In Africa, after villages fought, the losers were made slaves, but they were treated like extended family. But once they found out and started to take steps to end it, the white man with weapons took them. It is totally different. Slavery still exists in Africa today. Slavery also exists in Muslim countries … it was the Muslims who started the slave trade in the first place. You can use raw numbers as a proof of racism — the fact that blacks commit more violent crimes that whites means more blacks will be arrested than whites.

Not justifying the violent crimes committed by whites against blacks — both kinds are horrible and deserve the full punishment of the law. You enslave to this day in Africa, and every people and race that has ever populated the goddamn earth has either been enslaved or done the enslaving.

Get a life and grow the hell up! I see an awful lot of dark shading on the continent you call the Motherland. You start organizing some protests to clean up your house TODAY instead of bitching about a century and a half ago, then you might have some whites thinking your bleating about slavery is something other than self interest and politics.

You have closed your mind to the fact that until you solve a problem, it is still there. After the Holocaust Jews were given reparations for what happened to them. After the US blew up Japan they helped them rebuild. Neither incident was as devastating as Slavery. Three days later, on Christmas Day, , Taylor's column caught up with the main body of the Seminoles on the north shore of Lake Okeechobee. The Seminoles led by Alligator, Sam Jones , and the recently escaped Coacoochee, were well positioned in a hammock surrounded by sawgrass.

The ground was thick mud, and sawgrass easily cuts and burns the skin. Taylor had about men, while the Seminoles numbered less than Taylor sent the Missouri volunteers in first. Colonel Richard Gentry, three other officers and more than twenty enlisted men were killed before the volunteers retreated.

Then it was the turn of the 4th Infantry, men augmented by remnants of the 6th Infantry and the Missouri volunteers. This time the troops were able to drive the Seminoles from the hammock and towards the lake. Taylor then attacked their flank with his reserves, but the Seminoles were able to escape across the lake. Only about a dozen Seminoles had been killed in the battle. Taylor now joined the other columns sweeping down the peninsula to pass on the east side of Lake Okeechobee, under the overall command of General Jesup.

The troops along the Caloosahatche River blocked any passage north on the west side of the lake. On January 15 Powell, in the Battle of Jupiter Inlet , led eighty men towards a Seminole camp only to find themselves outnumbered by the Seminoles.

A charge against the Seminoles was unsuccessful, but the troops made it back to their boats after losing four dead and twenty-two wounded. The party's retreat was covered by Army Lt. At the end of January Jesup's troops caught up with a large body of Seminoles to the east of Lake Okeechobee. The Seminoles were originally positioned in a hammock, but cannon and rocket fire drove them back across a wide stream the Loxahatchee River , where they made another stand.

The Seminoles eventually just faded away, having caused more casualties than they received, and the Battle of Loxahatchee was over. The fighting now died down. In February Seminole chiefs Tuskegee and Halleck Hadjo approached Jesup with the proposition that they would stop fighting if they were allowed to stay south of Lake Okeechobee. Jesup favored the idea, foreseeing a long struggle to capture the remaining Seminoles in the Everglades , and calculating that the Seminoles would be easier to round up later when the land was actually needed by white settlers.

However, Jesup had to write to Washington for approval. The chiefs and their followers camped near the Army while awaiting the reply, and there was considerable fraternizing between the two camps. Secretary of War Joel Roberts Poinsett rejected the arrangement, however, and instructed Jesup to continue his campaign.

Upon receiving Poinsett's response, Jesup summoned the chiefs to his camp, but they refused his invitation. Unwilling to let Seminoles return to the swamps, Jesup sent a force to detain them. The Seminoles offered very little resistance, perhaps seeing little reason to continue fighting. Loxahatchee River Battlefield Park preserves an area of the fighting. Memorials are also located in Jonathan Dickinson State Park.

Jesup asked to be relieved of his command. As summer approached in the number of troops in Florida dwindled to about 2, In April Jesup was informed that he should return to his position as Quartermaster General of the Army.

With reduced forces in Florida, Taylor concentrated on keeping the Seminole out of northern Florida, so that settlers could return to their homes. The Seminole were still capable of reaching far north. In July they were thought responsible for the deaths of a family on the Santa Fe River , another near Tallahassee, as well as two families in Georgia. The fighting died down during the summer, as the soldiers were pulled back to the coasts.

The Seminole concentrated on growing their crops and gathering supplies for fall and winter. Taylor's plan was to build small posts at frequent intervals across northern Florida, connected by wagon roads, and to use larger units to search designated areas.

This was expensive, but Congress continued to appropriate the necessary funds. Killings in the Tallahassee area caused Taylor to pull troops out of southern Florida to provide more protection in the north.

The winter season was fairly quiet. The Army killed only a few Seminole and transported fewer than to the West. In Washington and around the country in , support for the war was eroding. The size of the Army had been increased because of the demands for manpower in the Florida war. Many people were beginning to think that the Seminole had earned a right to stay in Florida. The cost and time required to get all the Seminole out of Florida were looming larger.

Remembering the broken treaties and promises of the past, they were slow to respond to the new overtures. On May 19, , Macomb announced reaching agreement with the Seminole.

They would stop fighting in exchange for a reservation in southern Florida. As the summer passed, the agreement seemed to be holding. There were few killings. A trading post was established on the north shore of the Caloosahatchee River, and the Seminole who came to the trading post seemed to be friendly.

A detachment of 23 soldiers was stationed at the Calooshatchee trading post under the command of Colonel William S. On July 23, some Indians attacked the trading post and guard. Some of the soldiers, including Colonel Harney, were able to reach the river and find boats to escape in, but most of the soldiers, as well as a number of civilians in the trading post, were killed.

The war was on again. The Americans did not know which band of Indians had attacked the trading post. Many blamed the 'Spanish' Indians, led by Chakaika. Some suspected Sam Jones, whose band of Mikasuki had come to agreement with Macomb. Jones promised to turn the men responsible for the attack over to Harney in 33 days. In the meantime, the Mikasuki in Sam Jones' camp near Fort Lauderdale remained on friendly terms with the local soldiers.

On July 27 they invited the officers at the fort to a dance at the Mikasuki camp. The officers declined but sent two soldiers and a Black Seminole interpreter with a keg of whiskey. The Mikasuki killed the soldiers, but the Black Seminole escaped.

He reported at the fort that Sam Jones and Chitto Tustenuggee were involved in the attack. In August , Seminole raiding parties operated as far north as Fort White. The Army decided to use bloodhounds to track the Seminole. Although General Taylor had requested and received permission to buy bloodhounds in , he had not done so. In early , the Florida territorial government purchased bloodhounds from Cuba and hired Cuban handlers.

Initial trials of the hounds had mixed results, and a public outcry arose against the use of the dogs, based on fears that they would be set on the Seminole in physical attacks, including against women and children. The Secretary of War ordered the dogs to be muzzled and kept on leashes while tracking.

As bloodhounds cannot track through water, the Seminole easily evaded the dogs. In the north of Florida, Taylor's blockhouse and patrol system kept the Seminole on the move, but the Army could not clear them from the area. Ambushes of travelers were common. On February 13, the mail stage between St. Augustine and Jacksonville was ambushed.

In May Seminole attacked a theatrical troupe near St. Augustine, killing a total of six people. In the same month, a group of four soldiers traveling between forts in Alachua County was attacked, with one killed and two others never seen again.

A party of eighteen men pursued the Indians, but six were killed. In May Zachary Taylor, having served longer than any preceding commander in the Florida war, was granted his request for a transfer.

He was replaced by Brig. Armistead began an offensive, sending out soldiers at a time to search for the Seminole and their camps. For the first time, the Army campaigned in Florida during the summer, taking captives and destroying crops and buildings.

The Seminole also were active in warfare, killing fourteen soldiers during July. Armistead planned to turn over the defense of Florida north of Fort King to the militia and volunteers. He wanted to use Army regulars to confine the Seminole to south of Fort King, and pursue them within that territory. The Army destroyed camps and fields across central Florida, a total of acres 2. General Armistead became estranged from the territorial government, although he needed 1, militiamen from the Territory to defend the area north of Fort King.

Changes were also being made in southern Florida. Harney instituted an intensive training program in swamp and jungle warfare for his men. In the early years of the war Navy Lt.

Levin Powell had commanded a joint Army-Navy force of some men that operated along the coast. In late Navy Lt. McLaughlin was given command of a joint Army-Navy amphibious force to operate in Florida.

This included schooners off shore and barges close to the mainland to intercept Cuban and Bahamian traders bringing arms and other supplies to the Seminoles, and smaller boats, down to canoes, for patrolling up rivers and into the Everglades. An attempt to cross the Everglades from west to east was launched in April , but the sailors and marines were engaged by Seminoles at the rendezvous point on Cape Sable. Although there were no known fatalities the Seminoles carried off their dead and wounded , many of the naval personnel became ill, and the expedition was called off and the sick were taken to Pensacola.

For the next few months the men of Lt. McLaughlin's force explored the inlets and rivers of southern Florida. Traveling from December to the middle of January , McLaughlin's force crossed the Everglades from east to west in dugout canoes, the first groups of whites to complete a crossing. Indian Key is a small island in the upper Florida Keys which had developed into a base for wreckers.

In it became the county seat of the newly created Dade County and a port of entry. Despite fears of attack and sightings of Indians in the area, the inhabitants of Indian Key stayed to protect their property, and to be close to any wrecks in the upper Keys.

The islanders had six cannons and their own small militia company for their defense, and the Navy had established a base on nearby Tea Table Key. By chance, one man was up and raised the alarm after spotting the Indians. Of about fifty people living on the island, forty were able to escape. The dead included Dr. The naval base on Tea Table Key had been stripped of personnel for an operation on the southwest coast of the mainland, leaving only a physician, his patients, and five sailors under a midshipman to look after them.

This small contingent mounted a couple of cannons on barges and tried to attack the Indians on Indian Key. The Indians fired back at the sailors with musket balls loaded in one of the cannons on shore. The recoil of the cannons on the barges broke them loose, sending them into the water, and the sailors had to retreat. The Indians burned the buildings on Indian Key after thoroughly looting it.

In December , Colonel Harney finally got revenge for his humiliation on the Caloosahatchee River. He led ninety men into the Everglades from Fort Dallas on the Miami River, traveling in canoes borrowed from the Marines. They were guided by a black man named John who had been in Seminole captivity for a while. The column encountered some Indians in canoes and gave chase, catching some of them and promptly hanging the men. When John was having trouble finding the way, Harney tried to force the captured Seminole women to lead the way to the camp, reportedly by threatening to hang their children.

However, John got his bearings again and the Harney party found the camp of Chakaika and the 'Spanish Indians'. Dressed as Indians, the soldiers approached the camp early in the morning, achieving surprise. Chakaika was outside the camp when the attack started. He started to run and then stopped and turned to face the soldiers, offering his hand, but one of the soldiers shot and killed him. There was a brief fight during which some of the Indians escaped. Harney had two of the captured warriors hanged, and had Chakaika's body hung beside them.

Harney and his men returned to Fort Dallas after twelve days in the Everglades. Harney had lost one soldier killed. His command had killed four Indians in action and hanged five more. The Legislative Council of Florida presented Harney with a commendation and a sword, and Harney was soon given command of the Second Dragoons. However, Colonel Ethan A. Hitchcock recorded in his diary, with considerable frustration, that the General instead pocketed these proposals and insisted the chiefs agree to the terms of the Payne's Landing treaty.

Moreover, while talking peace, he secretly sent a force threatening Halleck's people at his home. After several days as guests of the Army both chiefs fled in the middle of the night on November 14, The Mikasukis, led by Coosa Tustenuggee and Halleck Tustenuggee, continued to operate in the northern part of the Florida peninsula.

Coacoochee took advantage of Armistead's willingness to negotiate. In March he agreed to bring in his followers in two or three months. During that time he appeared at several forts, presenting the pass given to him by Armistead, and demanding food and liquor.

The fort commander gave him one, along with five and one-half gallons of whiskey. By the spring of , Armistead had sent Seminoles west. Another were at Fort Brooke awaiting transportation. Armistead estimated that warriors had been shipped west during his tenure, and that there were no more than warriors left in Florida. In May , Halleck Tustenuggee sent word that he would be bringing his band in to surrender. In May Armistead was replaced by Col.

William Jenkins Worth as commander of Army forces in Florida. Due to the unpopularity of the war in the nation and in Congress, Worth had to cut back. Sprague, Worth's aide, believed that some civilians were trying to deliberately prolong the war in order to stay on the government payroll.

Nearly 1, civilian employees of the Army were released, and smaller commands were consolidated. Worth then ordered his men out on what would now be called 'search and destroy' missions during the summer. These efforts effectively drove the Seminoles out of their old stronghold in the Cove of the Withlacoochee. Much of the rest of northern Florida was also cleared by these methods.

The fort was named for Colonel Benjamin Kendrick Pierce , who oversaw its construction. After washing and dressing in his best which included a vest with a bullet hole and blood on it , Coacoochee asked Sherman to give him silver in exchange for a one-dollar bill from the Bank of Tallahassee.

At the meeting Major Thomas Childs agreed to give Coacoochee thirty days to bring in his people for transportation west. Coacoochee's people came and went freely at the fort for the rest of the month, while Childs became convinced that Coachoochee would renege on his agreement. Childs asked for and received permission to seize Coacoochee.

On June 4 he arrested Coachoochee and fifteen of his followers. When Colonel Worth learned of this, he ordered the ship to return to Tampa Bay, as he intended to use Coacoochee to persuade the rest of the Seminoles to surrender.
