Death of Tecumseh
Curious personalities/events of the 1812 era
Frank Kuron is a lifelong resident of Toledo, Ohio. He has been a graphic artist and copywriter for over 35 years; and an early American history enthusiast even longer. Frank authored his first book titled, “Thus Fell Tecumseh” in 2011. His book chronicles the battles and hardships of forces on both sides of the conflict in the year-and-a-half leading up to the Battle of the Thames in October of 1813; where the great Shawnee leader, Tecumseh, was killed. Over 160 primary accounts from diaries, newspapers, and letters provide the reader with the opportunity to solve the 200 year old historical mystery of how and by whose hand Tecumseh was slain. Frank has been a frequent guest columnist for the Toledo Free Press newspaper, writing War of 1812 era feature stories. The articles are written to shine a light on lesser known people, events and after-effects of the War of 1812. He is currently researching material for his next book on frontier life in the Northwest Territory and is a board member of the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Commission.
