    first gained national fame for leading U.S forces
    against American Indians at the Battle of
    Tippecanoe in 1811 and earning the nickname
    "Tippecanoe" (or "Old Tippecanoe")

Tecumseh
  • As more settlers entered the Northwest
    Territory, the Shawnee, among others, found
    themselves forced to assimilate or leave their
    lands. Tecumseh, the famed Shawnee leader, led a
    war against General William Henry Harrison in
    protest. The Shawnee were defeated by Harrsion at
    the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. Tecumseh died
    in 1813.

Tenskwatawa
  • Tenskwatawa was a Native American religious and
    political leader (of the Shawnee tribe), known as
    The Prophet or the Shawnee Prophet. He was the
    brother of Tecumseh, leader of the Shawnee. He
    was originally given the name Lalawethika (The
    Noisemaker).

Battle of Tippecanoe
  • On November 7, 1811, then-Governor William Henry
    Harrison defeated the Shawnee warriors at the
    Battle of Tippecanoe in what is now the state of
    Indiana.

Jonathan Jennings
  • Jonathan Jennings (1784 July 26, 1834) was an
    Indiana politician. Born in 1784 in Readington,
    New Jersey, he was the first Governor of Indiana,
    serving from 1816 to 1822. He died in July 26,
    1834 in Charlestown, Indiana.
  • He arrived in Clark County, Indiana in 1806, and
    established Charlestown as his home after
    considering Jeffersonville and Vincennes. "No
    slavery in Indiana" was his motto, and he labored
    hard for that. In 1809 he beat Territorial
    Governor William Henry Harrison's chosen
    candidate, Thomas Randolph, for the Indiana
    Territory representative to Congress.
