Who was the leader of the Red Stick Confederacy in the early 1800's?
Tecumseh ( ti-KUM-sə, ti-KUM-see; March 1768 – October 5, 1813) was a Shawnee leader who became the primary leader of a large Native American confederacy in the early 19th century. Born in the Ohio Country (present-day Ohio), and growing up during the American Revolutionary War and the Northwest Indian War, Tecumseh was exposed to warfare and envisioned the establishment of an independent Indian nation east of the Mississippi River under British protection. He worked to recruit additional members to his tribal confederacy from the southern United States. Tecumseh was among the most celebrated Shawnee leaders in history and was known as a strong and eloquent orator who promoted tribal unity.
