Established in 1808 by Tecumseh and the Prophet as the capital of their pan-Indian confederacy. Led by Tecumseh, representatives of many midwestern Indian nations met and lived here in an attempt to build the greatest Indian resistance movement in American history. A training ground for over one thousand warriors, Prophet's Town extended for two miles along this bluff. The Battle of Tippecanoe on November 7, 1811, crushed this confederacy, and Harrison's army burned the town the following day.
