Tippecanoe and Morton Too??

Did American Pioneer Music get the slogan wrong? Don't lose faith in us yet!

Benjamin Harrision called upon the spirit of his grandfather, William Henry Harrison, and had a campaign song to the tune of "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too!" The song definitely makes less sense, especially since Benjmain Harrision was not present at the Battle of Tippecanoe. Even so, lyricists often tried to let the world know that Ben did have a war record, as he was a veteran of the Civil War. His opponent, Grover Cleveland, avoided going to war.
