Additional Details

Depicts the American victory in southwestern Ontario which established control over the frontier near Detroit. Tecumseh was killed in the fighting. General William Henry Harrison commanded the American troops, which explains the renewed interest for his successful 1840 presidential campaign. A key identifies Harrison and other figures. No other examples traced at auction or in OCLC, although Rosenbach offered one in a 1948 catalog.
