Event Description

November 12, 2015 Updated Nov 20, 2015 at 11:15 AM EDT

Frank Kuron, author of Thus Fell Tecumseh, will make a special presentation at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor on Sunday, December 6, 1:00- 3:00 pm, at The Armory Arts & Events Center, 127 E. Clinton Street, in Napoleon, Ohio. The public is invited and the cost is $25 for members and $30 for non-members (payable at the door). A hot buffet luncheon is included which will be served at 1:00 pm. Reservations are required by December 2 and can be made by calling 419-278-0773 or by emailing the organization at maumeevalleyheritagecorridor@hotmail.com.

Kuron will discuss the historical events which serve as the basis for his book Thus Fell Tecumseh. Richard M. Johnson may have ridden the wave of credit for having killed Tecumseh all the way to the vice-presidency of the United States in 1836 using his clever campaign slogan, but there is an overwhelming amount of evidence suggesting someone else may have actually done this deed. This presentation will review many of the eye-witness testimonies to Tecumseh’s death at the Battle of the Thames.

Kuron’s book details the battles and hardships of the men involved in the Northwest Territory during the War of 1812 as well as the controversy surrounding who killed the great Shawnee leader in 1813. The author has been an early American history enthusiast most of his life and published his first book, Thus Fell Tecumseh, in 2011. He will have books for sale at the event and will be available to sign them.

Preceding the presentation, the Heritage Corridor will hold its Annual Business Meeting, including a review of the past year, plans for the coming year, and the nomination and election of board members for 2016.
