Product description

On June 3, 1513, ships commanded by Juan Ponce de Leon were attacked by a group of Calusa Indians in one of the first hostile encounters recorded between Europeans and Native Americans. Over the next four centuries, fundamental differences in land use philosophies and other factors would cause these two disparate cultures to clash numerous times with untold loss of life and property. From Ponce de Leon's first meeting in 1513 through 1901, this comprehensive reference guide details individual armed conflicts between Native Americans and Europeans. Chronologically arranged entries include information such as origin of the European party, Indian tribe involved (if known), location of the skirmish and number of casualties. The establishment of various forts is also listed within the chronology. An appendix provides a brief summary of related events after 1901.
