| The Last Stand for an American-Indian Nation
Some of the greatest American leaders never lived in the White House; some never lived in any house; and many fought against the US. Tecumseh would have founded the Indian nation that the English wanted as a buffer state between the expansionist, aggressive United States and British territories remaining loyal to the crown.

Tecumseh is the Machevelian leader par excellence. He preys on the Indian's superstitions; yet uses the White Man's medicine to predict eclipses and cement his sway over the Indians restive over US encroachments.

America needs leaders like you says Wm Henry Harrison (David Clennon) Tecumseh has no use for the arriviste American nation. He wants to preserve the old ways: hunting and fishing.

Yet as much of a rationalist as Tecumseh is he lives in the shadow of a deadly prophesy: he will fall in battle but if not raised by an Indian he and the indian nation he would found will down for the count -- for good. And this dire prophesy comes true at the Battle of the thames.

Not recommended for the timorous US - er who believes in flowery (meaningless) speeches and empty oratory. Highly recommended for those who would like a study of leadership and objective history. Excellent performance by the cast especially David Clennon as the future president Wm Henry Harrison.
