On November 10, Tippecanoe County Historical Association and the Indiana DNR, in co-operation with the Tippecanoe County Parks and Recreation Dept., will commemorate the Battle of Tippecanoe.
Beginning at the Battlefield at 10 a.m. re-enactors from the DuBois’s Company of Spies and Guides will be on hand with an encampment. DuBois’s Company provided reports to Harrison during this campaign.
The focus of this year’s commemoration is the Shawnee chief, Tecumseh. Tecumseh was born near Chilicothe, OH. He and his brother relocated to Indiana and eventually chose to locate near the confluence of the Wabash and Tippecanoe Rivers. Last seen in the Battle of Thames in Canada, Tecumseh was presumed dead after that battle.
For this event, the Battlefield Museum will be free of charge from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Morning talks will be held in the Battlefield Museum.
In the afternoon, Shawnee representatives will be on hand at Prophetstown State Park. The State Park will be free on Sunday.
