Biographical Note

The principal books dealing with Tecumseh are Drake's Life of Tecumseh, Eggleston's Tecumseh and the Shawnee Prophet, and The Story of Tecumseh, by Norman S. Gurd. The last mentioned is a vividly written, interesting book.

The following general books on the Indians contain short sketches of, or reference to, the subject of this story: Thatcher's Indian Biography; Drake's Indians of North America; Hodge's Handbook of American Indians; White's Handbook of Indians of Canada (based on Hodge); Roosevelt's Winning of the West; Trumbull's Indian Wars; Brownell's The Indian Races of North and South America; and Tupper's Life and Correspondence of Sir Isaac Brock.

All works dealing with the War of 1812 contain matter essential to the student of the career of Tecumseh. Chief among these are: David Thompson's War of 1812; Richardson's War of 1812 (the edition edited by A. C. Casselman (1902) contains many valuable notes); Coffin's 1812: The War end its Moral; a Canadian Chronicle; Auchinleck's History of the War; Hannay's War of 1812; Lucas's Canadian War of 1812; Roosevelt's Naval War of 1812; and Adams's History of the United States during the Administration of Jefferson and Madison.

The life and character of Tecumseh have formed the subject of three somewhat ambitious poems: Richardson's Tecumseh; Jones's Tecumseh, a tragedy in five acts; and Mair's Tecumseh, a drama.
