Teaching Address to William Henry Harrison (1810)

Address to William Henry Harrison (1810)

Born in 1768, Chief Tecumseh was a Shawnee chief and warrior. A persuasive speaker, Tecumseh traveled widely, promoting inter-tribal unity, particularly against expansion of European settlers. In August 1810, Tecumseh met with William Henry Harrison, Governor of Indiana, and demanded that Harrison cancel the Fort Wayne cession, which gave around 3 million acres of Indigenous American land to the White settlers of Illinois and Indiana.
