Re: Seminole-Negro Scouts Assoc. Info

Oops, forgot-noticed that the headstone is in error-not that unusual. For the info of those that don't know, the Seminole-Negro Indian Scouts served during the Indian Wars, out of Ft. Clark, Brackettville, Tx. They are descendants of the Seminoles and Seminole-Negros, both freemen and slaves who came to Indian Territory during the Indian Removal. I consider myself very fortunate to be learning from some of those descendants. Relatives and history stretch from Mexico through Texas and into Oklahoma and then back to Florida and the SE coast.

They have a long history and justifiable pride in the scouts achievements which included several medal of honor winners. Every September, they celebrate their history and families at Seminole Days in Brackettville.
