In 1794 the American army under the command of General Wayne won a major battle. This battle against the Indians was called the Battle of Fallen Timbers. After the Battle of Fallen Timbers the Indians signed treaties with the United States government giving the land to the Americans.
A new Indian leader named Tecumseh had a dream to build an Indian nation stronger than the United States. He wanted to unite the Miami, Potawatomi, Chippewa, Kickapoo, Illinois, Ottawa, Winnebago, and the Sauk-Fox tribes.
Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa built a camp at Tippecanoe. On November 11, 1811 while Tecumseh was away, Tenskwatawa led an attack on the army. The army was led by General William Henry Harrison. The Indians lost.
