It began with an eclipse. In 1806, the Shawnee leader Tenskwatawa ("The Open Door") declared himself to be in direct contact with the Master of Life, and therefore, the supreme religious authority for all Native Americans. Those who disbelieved him, he warned, "would see darkness come over the sun." William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory and future American president, scoffed at Tenskwatawa. If he was truly a prophet, Harrison taunted, let him perform a miracle. And Tenskwatawa did just that, making the sun go dark at midday.

"The Tippecanoe Campaign of 1811 was born out of tensions provoked by American settlement on the young nation's Northwest Frontier. After the 1795 Treaty of Greenville, which defined the border between Indian and American land, there were 16 years of peace. But later treaties, which expanded the settlement area, created intolerable pressures upon the frontier. Inspired by vision of the Shawnee shaman Tenskatawa, whom Americans called the Prophet and the speeches of his famous brother Tecumseh, Indians from many tribes defied their tribal chiefs and vowed to battle the Americans. They assembled at a site known as Prophetstown in the Indiana Territory, near the mouth of the Tippecanoe river on the Wabash. Alarmed at their presence, William Henry Harrison ordered the Indians to disperse. When they refused, he led an army of US Soldiers and the Indiana Territory militiamen to the town to enforce his demands." -- from the publisher description.

Perhaps best known for the Whig slogan in 1840 - "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" - William Henry Harrison used his efforts to pacify Native Americans and defeat the British in the War of 1812 to promote a political career that eventually elevated him to the presidency. This book focuses on Harrison's early life and military exploits.
