Destruction of Dunlawton Plantation

In January 1836, during the second Indian War, the Indians burned Dunlawton Plantation. Only the brick walls, the chimneys and the heavy iron machinery were left. The Plantation was not rebuilt until the 1840's.

The war cost the United States 19 million dollars, four times the amount paid to Spain for the entire state of Florida.
