Tecumseh

 
     
 

Tecumseh: Guardian Of The Ohio by Robert Griffing

 
 

The last half of the 18th century was a time of decline and retreat for the Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands and Great Lakes regions as white settlers violated treaty after treaty by pushing relentlessly beyond the Ohio River, which had been established as the permanent boundary between the red and white cultures by the Fort Stanwix Treaty of 1768.

Tecumseh, a Shawnee, born that year, knew by his early twenties that the Native Americans could not survive the onslaught so long as each tribe fought its own separate war; that the only hope for defeating the white man lay in the unity of all red nations east of the Mississippi. For the next 23 years Tecumseh would work tirelessly toward his goal of a unified Native resistance, organizing 32 nations from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. With the assistance of his brother, Tenskwatawa, The Prophet, he would lead the largest native resistance in American history. Tecumseh died at the Battle of Thames in 1813. At the time of his death, red and white men alike considered him to be one of America's greatest orators and military leaders.
