was the 'master spirit' of the Seminole wars. He could not claim hereditary
rights to the post of chief but his courage and aggressive stand toward
the white invaders led his people to choose him over Micanopy as
their leader. Perhaps the

was known as the Napoleon of the Seminole nation.
He was captured under a flag of truce in 1837.
