Engaging the Shawnee Village by John Buxton
west of present day Springfield, Ohio, 800 acres of Indian corn
grew. Thirteen year old Tecumseh, the future trribal leader, lived
in one of the villages. The British outpost of Detroit encouraged
and supplied these natives for attacks on colonists in Kentucky.
Here we see the retaliation. A campaign led by Col. George Rogers
Clark has taken the high ground above the village and west of the
British built stockade. They will rout the Natives and destroy all
food crops, thus insuring no southern raids.
