By July of 1842, John Horse concluded his military service. He and Susan sailed with 120 Seminoles from Tampa Bay. This was the second parting for John Horse, but the first for his companions, who were leaving Florida for good. As the ship pulled from the coast, many wept. Chief Halleck Tustenuggee uttered with scorn:

"I have been hunted like a wolf... and now I am to be sent away like a dog."
