Gregor MacGregor in In Pursuit

In Pursuit Exciting times! Gregor MacGregor (who conquered Amelia Island), George Woodbine and Robert Chrystie Armbrister (Corps of Colonial Marines) along with the Scottish trader Alexander Arbuthnot, planned to set up an empire with an army that would consist of former Red Sticks, Seminoles, and Blacks. With better timing they might well have been successful. A promised Indian nation would have provided a buffer.
