Come to find out, I did know about four of the tribes...all the ones that begin with "C" and had thought it was remarkable that all these tribes fought along side Confederate troops. What I didn't know was that Florida's Seminole Indian tribe also fought along side the Confederates. That is amazing given that there had been not one, but two, bloody and acrimonious Seminole Indian Wars previous to the Civil War. In fact, these wars provided battle experience for soldiers who later fought in the Civil War.

Today, the Seminole Tribe of Florida has a much more profitable activity--running highly lucrative casinos, especially the Hard Rock Casinos and Hotels. The one located in Hollywood, FL is where Anna Nicole Smith left this veil of tears.
