My most interesting primary source is the treaty of Payne's Landing. It is interesting because this is one of the many treaties the US Government used to manipulate the Native Americans to remove them from their homes and move them across the country to the reservation. This treaty deals with my topic because Osceola was present at the negations for this treaty. He was the main leader of the Seminole Indians in the Us Government's eyes and was the main reason the Indians refused the treaty agreements and refused to leave. This denial of the treaty lead to the Second Seminole War.
