Fearful of the Indian confederacy being formed by Shawnee chief Tecumseh & his brother The Prophet, the frontier settlers of Vincennes (Indiana Territory) issue a call for the destruction of the Indian village on the Tippecanoe River. A major battle would be fought there on November 7, giving Harrison some national attention.
