Our fall 2013 program “American Wars, American Lives: The War of 1812 in the West,” got off to a flying start yesterday evening with Gregory Evans Dowd’s reflections on “The Tecumseh Legend as History.” Dowd explored the legends surrounding Tecumseh, delving into controversies surrounding this mercurial figure, while placing Indian resistance to US expansion in the context of the War of 1812. Audience turnout was impressive, but for those who missed Prof. Dowd (and for everybody else), we’ll update our video archive shortly. Stay posted!
