    Currier [& Ives] "Death Of Tecumseh. Battle Of The Thames Oct 5th 1813." Hand-Colored Lithograph, 1841. This beautiful, rare, and very early Currier engraving depicts Colonel Richard M Johnson killing the famous Shawnee Chief Tecumseh. By J. L. McGee and published by N. Currier, New York, 1841. Measures approximately 9" x 12".

    The Battle of the Thames was a decisive War of 1812 victory for a future president, William Henry Harrison, who commanded the American Army as well as a future vice president, Richard Mentor Johnson, who led the volunteer cavalry and fired the fatal shot at Tecumseh, whose death led to the crumbling of the Indian coalition. This lithograph depicts that death scene.

    Fine-very fine, mounted on page.
