important people

Halpatter Tustenuggee, or “Alligator” ambushed florda milatants that where trying to take the black Seminoles to indian terrotory in modern day Texas. The impact is that most of the Immigration into Texas got postponed.


I think that Texas itself was better off in the long run because immigration of the black Seminoles added culture and more population it also helped the slave trade. (good for the people who where for slavery) Texans where not very happy about it at the time because it brought more conflicts in the pan handle and the border.
