Age 20

The Second Seminole War, often called the Florida War, was a conflict between Native Americans and the United States. Taking place from 1835 until 1842, it is regarded as the lengthiest, most expensive conflict that the United States had with the Native American people. There were roughly 1,600 US military casualties and over 3,000 deaths among the Seminole people. The war was followed by a brief period of peace, but the government's insistence on removing Native Americans from Florida would eventually result in further conflicts.
