“Florida was purchased; treaties with the Florida Indians were made and violated;
gross frauds were perpetrated; dishonorable expedients were resorted to, and
another war provoked. During its protracted continuance of seven years,
bribery and treachery were practiced towards the Exiles and their allies, the Seminole Indians;
flags of truce were violated; the pledged faith of the nation was disregarded….

“Men who wielded the influence of Government for the consummation of these crimes,
assiduously labored to suppress all knowledge of their guilt; to keep facts from the popular mind;
to falsify the history of current events, and prevent an exposure of our national turpitude……”
