  Battle of Tippecanoe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Tippecanoe was fought between United States forces led by Governor William Henry Harrison of the Indiana Territory and forces of Tecumseh's growing American Indian confederation.
The Battle of Tippecanoe was a crushing blow to Tecumseh's dream of a unified Indian confederacy.
Although the battle was crushing, it was not until 1813 at the Battle of the Thames and the death of Tecumseh that his confederation was eliminated.
