At a huge meeting at the Creek capital, in present-day Alabama, attended by five thousand natives from numerous tribes, Tecumseh spoke of his plan, and the red stick bundles were only three moons large.� At that meeting, Ridge threatened to kill Tecumseh if he came to speak to the Cherokee.� A Creek chief challenged Tecumseh, who replied that the chief's blood was white and that when he went home to Tippecanoe, he would stomp on the ground and shake the land, to let the tribes know the truth.� On November 7, 1811, the battle of Tippecanoe was fought, which was Harrison’s pre-emptive strike against Tecumseh’s efforts.� On November 16th, a great meteor was seen in the sky, which supposedly informed the natives that Tecumseh’s efforts had the Great Spirit’s approval, but Tippecanoe's ashes said otherwise.� A month later, while traveling back to Tippecanoe, at a camp near New Madrid, Missouri, Tecumseh received word of the disaster of Tippecanoe.� That same night, December 16, 1811, the first New Madrid quake hit, which was a series of quakes that are the strongest in the USA's history, measuring more than eight on the Richter scale and caused church bells to ring in Boston.� It stands today as a most curious testament to Tecumseh’s alleged ability.� Because of Tippecanoe, Tecumseh (some say it was his brother) also allegedly cast a curse on the USA, so that every president elected in a year ending in zero would die in office.� Harrison was the first to fall to this alleged curse, being elected in 1840 and dying soon after coming to office. [201] � With the destruction of Tippecanoe, The Prophet lost standing among the natives, Tecumseh’s plans were ruined, and he died in battle against Americans a couple of years later.� Many Creeks took his message to heart, dyed their war clubs red, and became known as the Red Sticks.� The last New Madrid quake was the most devastating and occurred on February 13, 1812.� In June the War of 1812 began and Tecumseh’s alliance was in ruins.� The Red Stick faction, acting on its own, initiated a civil war among the Creeks, warring against Creek villages that had adopted the white man’s ways.� The Spanish armed the Red Sticks, and in 1813, a group of American soldiers stopped and looted a Red Stick pack train, which ignited war with Red Sticks.�� Red Sticks then laid siege to Fort Mims in Alabama, and about 250 settlers were killed, which made huge news that swept the USA.
