After the battle, they abandoned Prophetstown and Harrison's men burned the town and returned homeVICTORY !!I curse you Harrison!! (and many future Presidents)

14Effects of the battle…Harrison proclaimed that he had won a decisive victory. He acquired the nickname "Tippecanoe", which was popularized in the song “Tippecanoe and Tyler too” during the election of 1840The Natives soon rebuilt Prophetstown, and frontier violence increases after the battlePublic opinion in the United States blamed the violence on British interference. This suspicion led to further deterioration of US relations with Great Britain.By the time the US declared war on Great Britain, Tecumseh's confederacy was ready to launch its war against the United States and embrace an alliance with the British.
