This entry in the series is as interesting for what it highlights as missing or open to interpretation, as for the parts of Tecumseh's speech it quotes. Since it was given at a time and place when/where recording and preservation were a bit precarious, the book emphasizes the various tools and strategies young researchers and historians need to use in order to gain a solid understanding, not only of the speaker's intents, but of what resulted following his speech.

Numerous additional resources are included in the back of the book. By the time readers have finished with it, they will not only understand the gist of the speech, but what the times were like for Black Americans and more importantly, should be able to reflect upon what, if any changes in race relations have occurred since the debate.… (mer)
