Commandant Henderson volunteered the Marines for service in the #SeminoleWars of 1835, personally leading nearly half of the entire Corps (two battalions) to war. A decade later, in the Mexican–American War (1846–1848), the Marines made their famed assault on #ChapultepecPalace in Mexico City, which would be later celebrated by the phrase "#FromTheHallsofMontezuma" in Marines' hymn. In the 1850s, the Marines would see further service in Panama and Asia, escorting Matthew Perry's East India Squadron on its historic trip to the #FarEast.[41]

Charles Tomlinson Dolton 1811-1888 (my 4th great grandfather) was a "ship carpenter who for many years followed a sea faring life, which is how he met his wife Emma Poulterer 'an English girl' on one such voyage. He served during the mexican war as a carpenter and was severely hurt having both his legs broken by falling timber. He also served in the war agains the Seminole in Florida and was one of the men who buried major Dade and his men." An excerpt from the History of Bucks County book. As it states on this document he also met his unlucky end by being kicked in the head by a horse. What an eventful life this man had! I know his parents are Charles Dolton and Tamar Tomlinson but I have yet to find out their parentage (even after all that Tomlinson sorting I've done!)

Fort Cooper – Site of Second Seminole War Battle. Constructed in April, 1836 along the Military Road, a section of which remains to this day, and the shores of Lake Holathlikaha just a few months after the Seminole attacks on Fort King and an army column under Maj. Francis Dade initiated what we’ve come to know as the “Second Seminole War”, Fort Cooper was the site of what was initially meant to be a resting area for wounded and sick men who were hampering the movement of the army in its pursuit of the indians. Located on the edge of the Seminole stronghold known as the Cove of the Withlacoochee the bivouac was soon discovered and besieged for 16 days until a relief column from Fort King arrived. The fort, named for and built under the direction of Maj. Anthony Cooper continued to serve as a base of operations and hospital until the end of the war. #seminolewars #seminolewarsite #fortcooper #floridaexplorer #floridaexploring #floridaexplorers #floridahistory #floridahistorymuseum #lovemesomehistory #thefloridaexplorer #therealfloridaexplorer #exploring #exploringislife #exploringflorida #lovemesomeexploring #thisishowiroll #thisishowigetsdown #thisishowwegetsdown #lovetheexploringlife #visitflorida #florida #floridalocal #therealflorida #welcometotherealflorida

The Westward Expansion was when settlers began to travel west to discover new lands for the expanding United States. This era was called Manifest Destiny because people began to believe that God told them to head west and seize these lands from the Native Americans.
When settlers ignored peace treaties between whites and the Indians, the Native American Indians began to attack small settlements. When this Indian raids occurred, the U.S. Military decided to set up small military forts across the frontier in order to protect the settlements from Indian raids, which was called frontier defense.
Some of these lands didn't just come from the Indians but also from countries like Spain, France and Mexico in the early eighteen hundreds and these unorganized lands became States of the Federal Union. Military forts were also established in these areas not only to guard the frontier settlements but to encourage the Westward Expansion.

🗃 April 16-18 1818 Battle of Suwannee River ( New Afrikan /Gullah/Seminoles Attacked) - Haki Kweli Shakur (Full Video on FB)
_
The Suwannee engagement was the largest and most decisive battle of the war, and the principal fighters were black. Despite the prominence of the black warriors, however, politicians and historians united in writing them out of the record books, classifying the First Seminole War as an Indian conflict. Jackson's enemies, most notably Henry Clay, sharply criticized the general's treatment of the Indians, but legislators did not protest the devastation wrought upon the blacks, if they were even aware of it. And yet Jackson's primary goal in Florida appears to have been the destruction of the black settlements on the Suwannee. The Hero himself did not shy away from describing the danger of the African rebels, as in this 1817 letter to the Pensacola governor:
_
Negroes who have fled from their masters, citizens of the United States … and the Seminole Indians … all uniting, have raised the tomahawk, and, in the character of savage warfare, have neither regarded sex nor age. Helpless women have been massacred, and the cradle crimsoned with the blood of innocence.
_
New Afrikan/Black Seminoles & Native Seminoles Defeated at battle of Suwanee April 16-18 1818, there were many other Black leaders of the Seminole tribe. It would take at least two more major wars of resistance before the Seminoles and their Black allies lost possession of those lands.
__
In the spring 1818, during the final stages of the First Seminole War (1816–18), General Andrew Jackson led 1,500 soldiers and 1,800 allied Creek in a two-pronged campaign to end Seminole resistance in north-central Florida

Black Seminoles: the former slaves at Fort Mose went to Cuba with the Spanish when they left Florida in 1763, others lived with or near various bands of Indians. Slaves continued to escape from the Carolinas and Georgia and make their way to Florida. #GullahWars #SuwanneeRiver #BattleofSuwannee #newafrikan77wordpress #blackseminoles #runawayslaves #seedofgabrielprosser #Florida #SeminoleNation #AndrewJackson #SeminoleWars #Afrikans #Indians #NewAfrikanNation #WeFaughtBack
