After shopping your heart away, on Sunday, November 9, take part in the Battle of Tippecanoe Annual Commemoration. On November 7th, 1811, William Henry Harrison's troops and the warriors of Prophetstown engaged in the famous Battle of Tippecanoe. This event, significant in the history of Indiana and the United States, is remembered each year by the Tippecanoe County Historical Association with special programs to help tell the story of the battle and to honor those who fought. This year, on Sunday November 9th from 10:00 to 5:00, to commemorate the battle, the special theme will be honoring American Veterans. A living history military encampment will be set up on the grounds of the park to showcase veterans from American conflicts throughout time. At 1:00 pm, a flag ceremony and wreath laying will be held at the monument. This event is free and open to the public.
