We love it when we stumble upon places that we know about from history classes. Today it was the Tippecanoe Battlefield and Museum. We visited the site of the November 7, 1811 battle between U.S. forces led by then Indiana governor William Henry Harrison against the Shawnee led by Tenskwatawa, the brother of Tecumseh. It was a set back for the Shawnee who never achieved their dream of a complete Indian Confederacy. Additionally it was a great public relations boon for Harrison that led to the famous campaign slogan, “Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too, and ultimately to the White House.
