Long out of print , this is one of the best reads for the 2nd Seminole Indian War in Florida. Based on the journal of Army Surgeon Jacob Rhett Motte it chronicles his travels and exploits through Florida during the conflict. In June, 1836 ,24 year old Motte, a Harvard-educated Southern gentleman departed his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina to serve as an Army surgeon in the wars against the Creeks and Seminoles. Motte, with a literary flair, details in excellent eye witness descriptions the Battle of Jupiter inlet, the capture of Osceola, King Phillip, Wildcat and Uchee Billy. His accounts of the many expeditions down the East Coast of Florida and his time spent in St. Augustine dancing with the Menorcan ladies leave one with a detailed picture of Florida during the 2nd Seminole Indian War. Nice condition with 368 pages and dust jacket.
