Tecumseh: Architect of Grand Alliance

ID : 530   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Two centuries after his death, Tecumseh is arguably the most celebrated Native American leader. He worked tirelessly to form a grand alliance of the Native American nations and tribes located east of the Mississippi river, and particularly those in the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes regions in order to stem the tide of Euro- American expansion west of the Alleghenies. His vision of a pan-unification failed to overcome intertribal differences and antagonisms, defeatism and accommodation among those already displaced. Was the failure due to Tecumseh’s leadership? Could he have done something differently? Had he succeeded, the history of America would be vastly different. We will read Tecumseh: A life (Owl Books, 1997) by British historian John Sugden.
