English: A colored version of Lossing's portrait of Tecumseh. No fully authenticated of Tecumseh exists; Lossing had not met the Native Indian leader and assumed that he was a British general. Based on a pencil sketch by Pierre le Dru, Lossing replaced Tecumseh's native costume with a British uniform and painted this portrait.
