Territorial Governor William Henry Harrison and Tecumseh met in August of 1810 in Vincennes. Tecumseh’s aim was to regain some of the land given up by Native Americans in the Indiana Territory. They met again in pitched battle. Tecumseh died at the Battle of the Thames in 1813. Harrison was one of the commissioners who negotiated the final land cession for the Northwest Territory. He was later elected President of the United States, serving until his death one month after being inaugurated.
