Well when I was researching Tecumseh I learned a lot more about him from internet reasources than my text books little summery.
- Tecumseh was an Indian.
-He was a Shawnee chief, a skilled man, and was a very good speaker.
- Tecumseh warned other tribes about other settlers.
-He wanted to make the American Indians the south and the eastern Mississippi Valley into a single confederation to oppose the American settlers
- Him and his brother united these tribs and got more people to join them.
-He was a threat to William Henry Harrison
-Tecumseh told Harrison about how all the Indians werent happy about the treaty.
-Tecumseh thought that the whites didn’t deserve to to take land from them just because they had it first.
-Harrison told Tecumseh not to resist the power of the United States.
INTERNET INFO (http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/entry.php?rec=373) :
- Tecumseh means shooting star.
- Born in 1768 in Old Piqua, along the Mad River in Ohio.
- raised by his eldest brother, Chiksika, and his sister, Tecumpease.
- Tecumseh’s first military encounter occurred against an army led by George Rogers Clark into the Ohio Country in 1782.
- early 1800s, Tecumseh decided that the best way to stop white advancement was to form a confederacy of Indian tribes west of the Appalachian Mountains.
- He also believed that, if the Indians united together, they would have a better chance militarily against the Americans.
-Tecumseh told governor Harrison that he wanted to take back the treaty because the Indian’s had the land before the Americans came.
- The Americans invaded Canada and killed Tecumseh during the Battle of the Thames.
-Tecumseh became a hero and was remembered by Canada for his defense of the country
