After Okeechobee, the Army was defeated in two more minor battles -- at Jupiter Inlet and Lockahatchee, where Jesup himself was wounded in the cheek. But these battles made no difference. Okeechobee had been the decisive engagement. The battle had convinced Jesup that the Seminoles could elude the Army almost indefinitely. He had to find another solution.
