Award-winning historian and author Peter Cozzens will discuss his new book on Shawnee leaders Tecumseh and his brother, Tenskwatawa.

Cozzens, a retired U.S. Foreign Service officer, will share his thoughts from Tecumseh and the Prophet: The Shawnee Brothers who Defied a Nation.

The book is the Shawnee leader's first biography in at least 20 years; it is also the first to make clear that his misunderstood younger brother, Tenskwatawa, was an equal partner in the last great pan-Indian alliance against the United States.

Author or editor of 16 books on the American Civil War and the Indian Wars of the American West, Cozzens in 2002 won the William R. Rivkin Award, the American Foreign Service Association's highest honor.

This special virtual historical lecture is made possible through the generosity of the Friends of Tecumseh District Library and The Tecumseh Herald.
