  • Comanche War Raids | Short Native American Documentary


    The Comanche tribe were nomadic people of the Great Plains. They hunted buffalo and lived in the territory known as Comancheria, which occupied todays west Texas, a part of New Mexico and Oklahoma. In the 17th century they acquired horses and quickly learned horse riding. Having horses meant the Comanche war tactics changed, they soon became masters of warfare, executing their famous Comanche raids under the Comanche moon. When it comes to horse archery they had no equals. Migrating to Texas they came in conflict with the Lipan Apaches which meant that soon a bloody Comanche Apache war took place. Soon war broke out between Comanches and the Spanish colonies, that means the Comanches fought and raided the Mexico territory. After that war broke out between the Comanches and Texas - than being an independent republic. The Comanches raided Texas. In the Great raid of 1840 they raided deep into Texas, sacking the town of Victoria and completely burning the city of Linville. The raid also came close to Austin. That was the biggest raid in history by a Native American war party.
    The Comanches, being warlike, fought with their opponents for most of their history, with Quanah Parker being one of their greatest and the last free war chief.

  • The War of 1812 - Crash Course US History #11


    In which John Green teaches you about the War of 1812. The War of 1812 was fought between the United States and its former colonial overlord England. It started in, you guessed it 1812. The war lasted until 1815, and it resolved very little. John will take you through the causes of the war, tell you a little bit about the fighting itself, and get into just why the US Army couldn't manage to make any progress invading Canada. And yes, Canadians, we're going to talk about the White House getting burned down. The upshot: no territory changed hands, and most of the other bones of contention were solved prior to the actual war. Although nothing much changed for the US and England, the Native Americans were the big losers. Tecumseh was killed, and the Indian tribes lost a lot of territory. Watch as John lays it all out for you. Also, check out #1812problems on Twitter. It's awesome.

  • War of 1812 in the Old Northwest


    In 1812, a very young United States of America had its sights set on expansion to the north and the west. But the British wanted to keep its former colony tightly contained. In the balance were the lands of the Northwestern Frontier.

    England's Canadian provinces wanted a buffer zone between their lands and what they perceived as a hostile United States. The native peoples who called this land their home, wanted it declared a self-governing Indian territory; an independent nation. The United States wanted to settle the frontier, as they felt they had been promised at the end of the Revolutionary War.

    The frontier was a gateway to further western expansion; a Great Lakes highway to natural resources; and a military challenge to the combatants.

    The War of 1812 would decide who controlled the lands of the Northwestern Frontier, and the future of a continent.

  • This Is The Most Powerful Native American Tribe In History


    The Comanche Nation was once the most powerful in America—and one of the most effective fighting forces in history. They fought off numerous foes and were only defeated in the late 19th century. Here's the secret story of the Comanche, the most powerful Native American tribe in history.

    The popular image of the Native American in the 19th century invariably shows them as invincible warriors who live their lives on horseback. And while the Comanche definitely live up to this image, it wasn't always the case. The Comanche started as nomadic hunter-gatherers who moved to follow seasonal prey. In many ways they lagged behind their peers. While the Aztec Empire was building incredible cities and the Iroquois were developing a sophisticated civilization, the Comanche built nothing and had no permanent settlements. They were also not particularly aggressive, which might have had to do with the fact that they were not notably good warriors.
    But all this changed in the late 17th century, when the Comanche first encountered the horse.
    The Spanish introduced the animals to the Comanche, but the Native American tribe demonstrated an understanding of both how to master these incredible animals and how to translate that mastery into military force. Over the course of the next century, the hunter-gatherers of the Comanche Nation transformed into a dominant, aggressive empire of warriors, and it was all due to their expertise in breaking, training, riding, and fighting with the horse.

  • Brock and Tecumseh Monument Unveiling


    Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens joined members of our local First Nations, archeologists City Councillors and members of the public for the dedication of a new sculpture featuring General Isaac Brock and Chief Tecumseh.

    The seven-foot-two sculpture is perched on an eight-foot base and will greet all those entering historic Sandwich Town via the new roundabout where Riverside Drive West meets Sandwich Street.

    The Brock-Tecumseh sculpture was spearheaded by late community activist John Muir, a passionate advocate for Sandwich Town, to find a lasting way to commemorate our history.

    The bronze sculpture, by artist Mark Williams, honours Major General Isaac Brock and Shawnee leader Tecumseh who led a British-First Nations force that took Detroit through strategic deception in August 1812.

    It shows the two in preparation for the assault on Fort Detroit, with Brock surveying the opposite shore across the Detroit River. Beside him, on horseback, the great Shawnee Chief Tecumseh gazes north up river to the newly placed British artillery position that is bombarding the American fortification. The successful assault and capture of the American position would take place two days later on August 16, 1812.

  • AUDIOBOOK || The Birth of TECUMSEH ||


    Tecumseh (c. 1768 – October 5, 1813) was a Shawnee chief, warrior, diplomat, and orator who promoted resistance to the expansion of the United States onto Native American lands. He traveled widely, forming a Native American confederacy and promoting tribal unity. Although his efforts to unite Native Americans ended with his death in the War of 1812, he became an iconic folk hero in American, Indigenous, and Canadian history.

    Tecumseh was born in what is now Ohio at a time when the far-flung Shawnees were reuniting in their Ohio Country homeland. During his childhood, the Shawnees lost territory to the expanding American colonies in a series of border conflicts. Tecumseh's father was killed in battle against American colonists in 1774. Tecumseh was thereafter mentored by his older brother Cheeseekau, a noted war chief who died fighting Americans in 1792. As a young war leader, Tecumseh joined Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket's war to defend against further American encroachment, which ended in defeat at the Battle of Fallen Timbers in 1794 and the loss of most of Ohio in the 1795 Treaty of Greenville.

    In 1805, Tecumseh's younger brother Tenskwatawa, who came to be known as the Shawnee Prophet, founded a religious movement, calling upon Native Americans to reject European influences and return to a more traditional lifestyle. In 1808, Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa established Prophetstown, a village near present-day Lafayette, Indiana, that grew into a large, multi-tribal community. Tecumseh traveled constantly, spreading the Prophet's message and eclipsing his brother in prominence. He proclaimed that Native Americans owned their lands in common, and urged tribes not cede more territory unless all agreed. His message alarmed American leaders as well as Native leaders who sought accommodation with the United States. In 1811, when Tecumseh was in the south recruiting allies, Americans under William Henry Harrison defeated Tenskwatawa at the Battle of Tippecanoe and destroyed Prophetstown.

    In the War of 1812, Tecumseh joined his cause with the British, recruiting warriors and helping to capture Detroit in August 1812. The following year he led an unsuccessful campaign against Americans in Ohio and Indiana. When U.S. naval forces took control of Lake Erie in 1813, Tecumseh reluctantly retreated with the British into Upper Canada, where American forces engaged them at the Battle of the Thames on October 5, 1813, in which Tecumseh was killed. His death caused his confederacy to collapse; the lands he fought to defend were eventually ceded to the U.S. government. His legacy as one of the most celebrated Native American leaders in history grew in the years after his death, although the details of his life have often been obscured by mythology.

  • BATTLE OF THE THAMES 2013 - Tecumseh Quote 004


    One of Tecumseh's famous quotes spoken by Graham Greene:
    The only way to stop this evil is for all of our people to unite in claiming an equal right in the land. That is how it was at first and should be now, for the land was never divided, but for the use of everyone. Any tribe could go to an empty land a make a home there, and when they left, another tribe could come there and make a home. No groups among us have the right to sell land, even to one another, and surely not to outsiders who want all, and will not do with less. Sell land, sell a country! Why not sell the air, the clouds and the Great Sea as well as the earth? Did not the Great Good Spirit make them all for the use of all of his children?
    We gave them forest-clad mountains and valleys full of game. And in return what did they give our warriors and our women? Rum, trinkets, and graves.Brothers.My people wish for peace, we all wish for peace. But where the white people are there is no peace for them, except on the bosom of our mother.
    Chief Tecumseh



    The year is 1813 and the balance of power in the Lake Erie region is tipping in favour of the Americans. The Battle of Lake Erie is lost to the Americans under Oliver Hazzard Perry and the British fleet is smashed. Fearing being completely cut off from supply routes, General Proctor decides to retreat to Burlington, but fails to adequately inform his inferior officers and Tecumseh of his plans which leads to distrust and suspicion. Tecumseh agrees to follow the British. Together, Proctor's 41st regiment and Tecumseh's warriors make a stand 2 miles down the Thames River from Morraviantown. It is a good site. The British left flank is protected by the river and a swamp on the right and Tecumseh's warriors are on the high ground overlooking the swamp. In a bold and unconventional move, General Harrison unleashes his cavalry which breaks the British. The natives hold their ground as the battle rages back and forth undecidedly. Above the raging sounds of battle, Tecumseh's voice no longer rings out to inspire his people.
    On October 5th, 1813, the American army under General Harrison is victorious over the British and Tecumseh's forces. With winter approaching, Harrison leaves the region after burning Morraviantown to the ground. This leaves the farms and homes of the Thames River region and western district as un-occupied territory, susceptible to raiding parties of Americans, British and Natives for the next 15 months until the end of the war in 1815. With Tecumseh's death, the dream of a native confederacy and independent state in the American Midwest is destroyed, leaving open the route west for American expansionism.

    2013 Bicentennial
    The Battle of the Thames-2013 will be a 'living history' week end event. Living history is the re-creation of an event by people who have a passion for immersing themselves in history. They dress, act, and use the same equipment and clothes as people did at a particular point in the past. For the Battle of the Thames-2013, the time portrayed is October 1813. It will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle fought between the American Army of the Northwest and the alliance of the British Right Division and First Nation confederacy.
    The original battle was fought along the Thames River a few miles downstream from the village of Morraviantown, near present day Thamesville. Tecumseh monument is located here and this will be the site of the Bicentennial re-enactment.
    The Battle of the Thames-2013 will be a 2 day event on October 4th and 5th of 2013. Friday Oct 4th is Education Day. Thousands of school children will attend to see civilian and military life along the Thames as it was 200 years ago. On Saturday Oct 5th there will be military camps, demonstrations, entertainment, shopping, a battle re-enactment and a period style dance.
    Why re-create this event? The Battle of the Thames was a major significant event that changed the course of history of the Midwest of the United States and Canada. The death of Tecumseh, the breakup of the native confederacy, and the absence of the British allowed the government of the United States to aggressively persue its acquisition of native lands of the Midwest. It permanently laid to rest the British and native hopes of preserving an independent, sovereign native nation south of the Great Lakes. The efforts and sacrifices of the people involved deserve to be remembered, recognized and commemorated.

Tecumseh and the Prophet presents the untold story of Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa, the Shawnee brothers who retaliated against this threat--the two most significant siblings in Native American history, who, Cozzens helps us understand, should be writ large in the annals of America.
