The Black Seminoles are a small offshoot of the Gullah who escaped from the rice plantations in South Carolina and Georgia. They built settlements on the Florida frontier that in the 18th century was a vast tropical wilderness. It offered a refuge to escaped slaves and refugee Indians. In time, the two groups came to view themselves as part of the same tribe. The Gullahs adopted Indian clothing, while the Indians acquired a taste for rice and appreciation for Gullah music and folklore.

I can't imagine standing there.....thinking of all the people who died on this Trail....what they had to endure, how they suffered.  America has a lot to be ashamed of as far as how the Native Americans were treated.....
