AAA Editor Notes

Tippecanoe Battlefield is off SR 43, 1.2 mi. s. of I-65. At this 90-acre park, a monument marks the site of the 1811 battle in which Gen. William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory in the early 1800s and ninth president of the United States, attacked the Native Americans led by the Prophet, the brother of Tecumseh. The battle is explained through a series of exhibits and audiovisual presentations at the interpretive center museum. Of interest is the collection of antique firearms. Picnicking is permitted.
