The War, 1 June 1813 (vol. 1, no.50)
Contains an article under the heading “Interesting Particulars”, describing the treatment of American prisoners taken during the late engagement at the [Maumee River] Rapids. It is noted that “the prisoners were taken to the old fort…Having been left in the fort under a small guard, the Indians broke in upon them and killed a number. Two of the English soldiers were killed by the Indians in attempting to defend them; Tecumseh and col. Elliot soon came to their relief and put an end to the massacre. Tecumseh, in particular, was much enraged at the conduct of the Indians”.
