I learned of Major Dade when I visited the Smithsonian. I then looked into the Seminole Wars. The nation went bankrupt trying to chase the Seminoles out of Florida. Major Dade's detachment didn't stand a chance with the training they had. It was almost like Braddock's Defeat (1755) of over half a century earlier.

Glad to see there's a challenging match though.
