Description"Items relative to the Tippecanoe Battle Ground etc. (title from verso) AMs, 1 p. General Tipton (who had been an ensign under Capt. Spencer in the Battle of Tippecanoe) purchased the Battle Ground to preserve it, planning to enclose it and erect a monument. The state approached him with the intention of acquiring the site, and he donated it to the state with the condition that it be enclosed. The bones of the dead were collected in 1828 and reinterred ceremoniously. The buried bodies had been disturbed by Indians.
