Rebellion: Prophets, Battles and Indian Leaders



Hi everyone! I am going to do something a bit different today. My post will be mostly visual! In the following slides I will discuss a tiny fraction of the American Indian rebellion, some of it’s causes, some of it’s leaders, some of the American responses, and the end result of their efforts, all of which, was mentioned in the World Together, Worlds Apart History Textbook chapter 16 titled, “Alternative Visions for the 19th Century.”


I hope you enjoy; please let me know what you think and whether or not you agree with my analysis! 



As American settlers continued to encroach on their land, even the land specifically set aside by the government, Tecumseh, as well as many others became alarmed. Since the government did not value Ohio Indian rights as much as it’s own citizens little action was taken.






The only way the American Indians could have won against the vast amounts of American settlers was to unite their tribes much much earlier.

Feel free to comment!
