Necklace made of hundreds of tiny glass trade beads in many colors, recovered from the site of the US trading post on the Caloosahatchee River near Ft. Meyers, Florida, that was massacred and destroyed by Seminole Indians led by Chief Holatamico (better known as Billy Bowlegs). 8 grams, 26" long. A long string of tiny, plain beads in many different colors (mostly orange, red and yellow), often referred to as "Harney Massacre" beads in reference to Lieutenant Colonel William S. Harney, who was manning the site when the Seminoles attacked. Housed in a Riker box with printed history and with photo-certificate.
