We don't often think of U.S. Presidents as conquerors, but the title fits Andrew Jackson. In 1817, President James Monroe ordered then-General Jackson to stop Seminole attacks in Georgia. Instructed not to violate Spanish-controlled Florida unless in hot pursuit, Jackson invaded anyway, overthrew the governor, seized the military post St. Marks, and executed two British citizens for inciting the Seminole. Along the way, he seized runaway slaves and destroyed the so-called "Negro Fort". Jackson's actions caused an international incident, and while some called for his head, demanding that he be removed from his post and brought to trial, Monroe backed him. Within two years, Spain ceded Florida to the U.S.--and Jackson's conquest was complete. Join us for a balanced look at both sides of the conflict as we use location shooting and state-of-the-art animation to support our storytelling.
