Virtual Event: Making Chief Osceola- The Abolitionists and the Rise of an American Myth
November 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Anti-war and abolitionist activists helped promote an enduring series of myths and fabrications about Chief Osceola, who played a pivotal role in the Second Seminole War and died in U.S. military captivity in 1838. Osceola was a focus of debates over Indian wars, Indian removal, and their connections to American slavery. This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and Orange County Library System.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
