Battle of Tippecanoe

Fought today in 1811. Wiki article. Below is an interesting visit to the site and a perspective on events.

  1. Dear Sir,
    While any discussion on this subject is complicated, one must remember that Tecumseh was a British ally fighting the Americans to further British interests.
    Furthermore, the Indians certainly were not the peaceful traders as the narrator implies, hence the Fort Dearborn massacre.
