Florida Humanities Speaker Series: “Making Chief Osceola: The Abolitionists and the Rise of an American Myth” presented By Andrew Frank This talk explores how Osceola became a national phenomenon after his death in the nineteenth century. It includes an overview of the war as well as a discussion of Osceola’s place in the Second Seminole War. The talk then turns to a discussion of the debates that occurred in the United States over Indian wars, Indian removal, and their connections to American slavery. In this context, we learn about how Osceola has been remembered and mis-remembered since his capture and death. Special attention is paid to the role of anti-war and abolitionist activists in promoting and fabricating a series of enduring myths about him. Free admission Support for the Speaker Series is provided by the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs. The Cedar Key Historical Society is grateful for their donors.
