I know'knew Tecumseh was not a chief, any more than he was a British
brigadier general, many paintings to the contrary.
I knew you knew (did I say that correctly) and I also knew that you
were at Wolf's speech ...
I just thot I would cement the fact that Tecumseh was not a Chief.
I hear that the a British Brigadier General thingie was due to an incident
at Fort Ameherstburg (Malden).
"Tecumseh had given Brock a woven sash so Brock gave him a scarlet officer's
On leaving the building Tecumseh was seen talking to a warrior who was
wearing a higher rank scarlet coat then Tecumseh so Brock hearing of this he
gave him a British Brigadier General's coat so he would not be out ranked"

Also Tecumseh was reported to be a Freemason ... for a man who hated whites
as much as he did ... I doubt he would enter an organisation such as the
He was a great man and that is when the stories start .....
