Today in Georgia History:
January 26, 1838 Seminole chief Osceola died while in prison at Fort Moultrie near Charleston, S.C. Born in the Creek Nation, Osceola and other Creeks migrated into Florida after the Creek War to join the Seminoles. He was a leader in the Second Seminole War (1835-1842). In 1837, Osceola came under a flag of truce to discuss peace, but on command of Gen. Thomas Jesup, U.S. military authorities arrested Osceola and sent him to prison.
