Though not widely known, the story of the Black Seminoles is deeply rooted in the fabric of American history. Fleeing plantations in the American South, slaves first began making their way to Spanish Florida in the late 1600s, when Spain offered freedom to fugitives who agreed to defend the Spanish crown. Just north of St. Augustine, black refugees from British America founded the settlement of Mose, the first legally sanctioned free black town in North America.
