Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee-March 1813 courageous in the face of extreme adversity, a man of utmost integrity, selflessness, loyalty and true leadership. He was born to be a force to be reckoned with and staked himself to the land until the end.
Tenskwatawaw, called the Prophet was Tecumseh's brother. He was a self proclaimed prophet who sought his own glory. After a ritual he convinced their followers to join the British in an attack on a US Fort. He promised none would be injured in the attack. Of course some were killed and also wounded. After this false prophecy many lost faith in him and the confederacy. When Tecumseh found out his brother went against his wishes of staying at peace whilst he was away, also lost faith in him.
