This pamphlet, based on William Henry Harrison's report to Congress, describes the Battle of Tippecanoe on November 7, 1811, in which Tecumseh was defeated. The "raw troops" commanded by Indiana Governor Harrison repelled the "violent and unexpected" attack by "hostile Indians on the Wabash." The troops comported themselves "with a gallantry and good conduct worthy of future imitation." The Committee resolves that soldiers or their legal representatives ought to receive additional pay, and that those wounded or killed who were purchasers of public lands be granted additional considerations.
