General William Henry Harrison led a stunning victory over British forces and their Native allies in the Battle of the Thames on this day in history, Oct. 5, 1813.
The swift American victory in the War of 1812 had long-term repercussions on U.S., British and Native American history and on the settlement of the west.
The battlefield heroics propelled Harrison, the son of Founding Father and Declaration of Independence signer Benjamin Harrison V, to the White House in 1841.
"The Battle of the Thames (also known as the Battle of Moraviantown) was a decisive American victory that brought Michigan and the Old Northwest back under American control," writes Canada's National History Society of the encounter fought on the Ontario side of Lake Erie.
