But that was not the heaviest blow to the confederation that Tecumseh and the Prophet had worked so hard to establish.
The heroic, the high-minded, the hapless Tecumseh was fallen.
Both Tecumseh and Hill are covered with scars that they have received in their desperate conflicts.
I saw the Shawnee chief, father of Tecumseh, snap his piece at the boy.
Tecumseh, Pontiac, and other tribal leaders finally failed because of this fact.
It was thought that Tecumseh mistook this tool for a gun, and was nervous.
Fernando was in the fort when it was besieged several weeks later by Proctor and Tecumseh with fully two thousand men.
When the Tecumseh went to the bottom the Admiral prayed for light and guidance.
There is every reason to believe that Tecumseh was convinced of the truth of all this.
Even in time of peace Tecumseh was accustomed to suffering and discontent.
