  9. Discussion - Blog Questions • Laura Secord • If her husband was not hurt, do you think Laura Secord would have been the hero she is? Why? • How did her actions (making a detour and walking 20 km for 20 hours so as not to get caught) lead to the winning of the battle? •  Why do you think it took many years (1860) for her to be recognized as a hero? What does that say about the role of women in society in those days?

  10. Discussion - Blog Questions • Tecumseh • During the American revolution, many Shawnee villages were destroyed by the Americans. Tecumseh realized that the natives had to unite to survive. How important was that decision? • Do you think the Shawnee people made the right choice to be the allies of the British? Why? • What do you think would have been the outcome of the battle if Tecumseh had not died?
