This is the gripping story of the Tippecanoe campaign of 1811: The
prophet's battle'. It was a conflict born out of festering tensions
inscribed by the 1795 Treaty of Greeneville, which had concluded the
Northwestern Indian War and attempted to prevent white settlers' encroaching
onto newly defined Indian territories. For 16 years there had been peace,
but in 1811 the number of settlers in the Ohio territory had swollen from
3,000 to 250,000. War was again coming to the North West. Within these pages
John F. Winkler explores the dramatic build up to the conflict as The
Prophet' Tenskatawa and his brother Tecumseh rallied the tribes to drive
back the American settlers once and for all. Through superb illustrations
and maps, Winkler provides a clear view of the intense fighting that
followed at Tippecanoe and the true impact that it would come to have on the
War of 1812.


John F. Winkler lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife of more than 40
years. They have three children and six grandchildren. He has written many
works on the history of Roman, English and American law. He also explores
forgotten historical sites in Ohio and neighboring states.Peter Dennis was
inspired by contemporary magazines such as Look and Learn he studied
illustration at Liverpool Art College. Peter has since contributed to
hundreds of books, predominantly on historical subjects, including many
Osprey titles.
