What rank did Tecumseh reach in the British army?

The Shawnee political and military leader Tecumseh (1768-1813) fought against the U.S. as a British brigadier-general in the War of 1812.

Born in what is now western Ohio, he had resisted U.S. encroachment on Native American lands but was defeated at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811.

When the War of 1812 broke out, Tecumseh joined the British side and was killed in 1813 at the Battle of the Thames in Ontario.
