#2. Native American attacks on frontier - instigated by the British - Simply because Native Americans and European colonists or "Frontiersmen" couldn't put aside their differences and get along

#3. Tecumseh - Native American who tries to unite tribes east of the Mississippi River (Confederacy) Tries to bring tribes together and fight against settlers but he then flees to present day Canada
