Tecumseh was a Shawnee indian that was a gifted organizer and leader. He created a confederacy of all the tribes east of the mississippi. With this he inspired Indian unity and cultural renewal. He opposed the practice of permitting any one tribe to sell land that belongs to all indians. With the Americans moving into their land, the confederacy was forced to move westward. At the battle of Tippecanoe the few indians were killed and the settlement was burned. All this drove Tecumseh to create an alliance with the British which also abhored the Americans. Tecumseh fought for the redcoats until he died and with his death died the dream of an Indian Confederacy
