    Fought for the British during the War of 1812

    Although he is often described as a leader of the Shawnees, few Shawnee were among his followers, with most either moving west or choosing to remain at peace with the United States.
    He was ranked 37th on the CBC's Great Canadians list even though his only connection to Canada was dying there.
    Although he died at the battle of the Thames, his body was never found.
    Richard Mentor Johnson became vice-president almost solely on his claim to have been the man who killed Tecumseh.
    He allegedly placed a curse on the US presidency.
    He was an impressive orator.
    He convinced Indians from different tribes throughout the Midwest to join him in resisting the US Army.
    He claimed, with considerable justification, that the Treaty of Fort Wayne, in which Indians ceded 3 million acres in Ohio and Indiana to the US, was illegal.
    Four US Navy vessels were named in his honor.
