In honor of the 205th anniversary of the battle tomorrow, this episode is all about the battle that made Harrison famous – the Battle of Tippecanoe. We discuss the lead-up to the battle, what actually transpired, and what the battle meant for Harrison, the white settlers, and the Native Americans of the Old Northwest. Those two hours of battle would prove to have long-lasting effects for all involved. Source notes and sound attributions for this episode can be found at http://whhpodcast.blubrry.com.
