"Old Tippecanoe has Come Out in the West"   Save
Description: Colored print titled "Old Tippecanoe has come out in the West, In all the wide borders his steed is the best!" It is meant to depict William Henry Harrison's log cabin on the Ohio River in North Bend, Ohio. A barrel of hard cider is by the cabin, a flag reading "Harrison & Tyler" is flying above, and Harrison is in front greeting a wounded soldier. Harrison was the Whig candidate for President in 1840 and his running mate was John Tyler. Their campaign slogan "Old Tippecanoe and Tyler Too" referred to Harrison's defeat of the Shawnee chief, Tecumseh, at Tippecanoe Creek in 1811. View on Ohio Memory.
