From the back cover:
"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 Greeneville, 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 along the frontier. Inspired by visions of the Shawnee shaman Tenskatawa, whom the 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, the Governor of the Indiana Territory, 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. This highly illustrated new study tells the story of the intense fighting that followed at Tippecanow as war came once more to the Northwest Frontier."
