There was the War of the Quadruple
Alliance (1718–20), the Blockade of
Porto Bello (1726), and the
Anglo-Spanish War (1727–1729). The Spanish accept our slaves and convert them to Catholicism.
They even allow the former slaves to form communities to the north of St. Augustine.
(Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mosé.).
Spanish send Catholic missionaries into
our land. Continuous war throughout the century caused
tension between the two nations.
Neither nation can be deemed right or wrong.
Both nations suffered causalities and both
led battles against each other. Also, the French continue to move eastward from the
Mississippi River decreasing our territory.
In 1702, English Colonel James Moore attacked our fort at St. Augustine, burned our Missions, and killed our Native allies.
In 1740, we suffered a month attack at St. Augustine by forces put together by James Oglethorpe.
Our forts such as, Fort Moses, Picolatta, and Fort San Diego have been attacked and captured by the English. Arguments over goods and cargo
that led to War of Jenkin's Ear in
Spanish are encroaching on our land spreading
their religion. Spanish erect the fort, Castillo de San
Marcos. Spanish invade and attack our colony of Georgia
in 1742. Work Cited: 1. War Clouds on the Mississippi: Spain's 1785 Crisis in West Florida. Gilbert C. Din
