A Little About the Orlando Behind the Numbers

Of course, Orlando wasn’t always a mecca of excitement for travelers. In fact, it started out as a dangerous part of the state due to conflict between the local Seminole people and settlers. Their fierce clashes continued right to the Treaty of 1842, even after nearby Fort Gatlin was built in 1838 to settle the situation down. Indeed, the Seminoles were still undefeated when they signed the treaty.
