Battle of Tippecanoe
Through their spy network (Tecumseh and his nephew Spemica Lawba and others) the United States knew that the Anishinabek and their allies, were organizing for another attempt to prevent the United States from stealing their beloved land. This 1811 battle was the first battle of the War of 1812. A war which was ignited for only one reason, and that was to get the remaining Indian land in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois, which was under Anishinabe control. Although the United States was victorious in the Battle of Tippecanoe, the Americans suffered far more casualties (188 with 62 killed). The number of soldiers who participated in the Battle of Tippecanoe was another factor also. Less than 500 Anishinabe soldiers participated, which was about half the number of American soldiers who numbered around 1000. Tenskwatawa was supposedly the ogima who led the Indian soldiers in this battle.
