Abstract
Featuring essays on topics ranging from international diplomacy to Seminole military strategy, America's hundred years' war ... reexamines the traditional line of thought that has previously defined early U.S. expansion into the Spanish Gulf borderlands. America's extended battle with the Seminoles transpired over a period of nearly a century commencing in the decades prior to the American Revolution and ending in the decade before the U.S. Civil War ... Each essayist ... expands the conventional views and periods of U.S.-Seminole contact, and each does so in a variety of manners -- chronologically, geographically, culturally, politically, [and] conceptually.
