The Army marched its prized captives into old St. Augustine. The citizens turned out in droves. Everyone wanted to see Osceola, the savage chief who had so lately terrorized the nation. Surgeon Jarvis rode alongside the great warrior, recording the moment for posterity. John Horse walked at the back of the procession. No one recorded the crowd's impression of the black warrior.
