This storyboard does not have a description.
A Young Fighter
Tecumseh was born in Old Piqua on March 1st 1768. His father was a well respected war chief. His mother was possibly of Cherokee origin.
The Indian Movement
Tecumseh reached his adult age in the middle of a war in the Ohio Valley. His father was killed in battle, and his mother fled with other Shawnee to Missouri. He then was raised by an older sister.
A Shattered Plan
For his first raids, Tecumseh joined his older brother and a group of young fighters. He raided Tennesee and Kentucky Settlements in the 1780s. He also led a scouting party that fought at Fallen Timbers.
When there was an eclipse, lots of Native Americans gathered at Greenville, Ohio. Tecumseh took his brother's following and turned it into a movement. The Native Americans built Prophetstown and stayed there during the movement.
Tecumseh made his brother the main leader after loss of more land. Tecumseh was recruiting Creeks when Americans attacked Prophetstown. They defeated the Native Americans and burned the settlement and the Native American food supplies.
Tecumseh tried to rebuild his movement but failed. When the War of 1812 started, he traveled to Michigan and assisted the British for the capture of Detroit. He fought at the Battle of the Thames and was killed by American Troops. He died on October 5th 1813.
