27448Re: [WarOf1812] Tecumseh facts vs Tecumseh fiction
- Feb 2, 2006Mr Yaworski
My reaction to the post you quote was the same as yours: shock. It was less than coherent and perhaps, to be charitable, an attempt to be humourous. as really "out there" speculation, I would suggest that it is an unprofitable avenue in which to invest much further discussion.

" I must confess I was stunned to read the following: "maybe the historical reports of .. Tecumseh were mearly wounded and not killed? ...
Harrison was quite sure Tecumseh had been killed. He knew Tecumseh by
sight ...they state they saw Tecumseh's body, and it had been most foully mutilated, presumably by "souvenir hunters".

I have never heard any such story that claimed Tecumseh was carried
from the field alive only to die at some other time and location.
I agree with Mr. Yaworsky and Mr. Thomas
Members of Ken Hall's 'Kentucky Light Dragoons' who have visited the
Kentucky museums and have photos of a captured 41st Regiment drum, a lantern
shade supposedly made from a piece of Tecumseh's back skin, etc., relics
from the Battle of the Thames brought back to Kentucky by members of the
Kentucky Forces who fought at the Battle of the Thames.
They have also researched documents that reports the 'Kentucky Light
Dragoons' and USA Forces victory at the Battle of the Thames and that
Tecumseh was killed and identified as the Shawnee known as 'Tecumthe'.
James Alexander Thom states that his book "PANTHER IN THE SKY"
ISBN:0-345-30596-5 which chronicles the life of Tecumseh, was researched
from original documents and Shawnee oral history which state Tecumseh was
killed during the Battle of the Thames.
As does John Sugden author of "TECUMSEH'S LAST STAND" ISBN: 0-8061-1944-6
