German film - Battle of Tippecanoe 1811

rgw description on the Youtube page says Some pretty bizarre stuff to say the least. Sourced from a 1972 German flick - Tecumseh. W.H. Harrison destroys an indian force that unwisely challenges him.
In reality, Harrison had a largely militia force of 700, 90 cavalry and 250 regulars to against the 700 indians. The Detroit frontier battles looked hardly anything like the set piece Napoleonic battle you see here.
