Tenskwatawa, the brother of Shawnee leader Tecumseh, was engaged in the Battle of Tippecanoe in spite of his brother?s strict admonition to avoid it. The November 7, 1811, battle near the Tippecanoe River with the regular and militia forces of Indiana Territory Governor William Henry Harrison, took place while Tecumseh was out of the area seeking support for a united Indian movement. The battle, which was a nominal victory for Harrison?s forces, effectively put an end to Tecumseh?s dream of a pan-Indian confederation. Harrison?s leadership in the battle also provided a useful campaign slogan for his presidential bid in 1840.
