The Curse of Tippecanoe
The Curse of Tippecanoe is attributed to Tenskwatawa, or The Prophet, the brother of the famous Shawnee leader, Tecumseh. The Prophet is said to have cursed William Henry Harrison while on his deathbed. He cursed not only Harrison, but the office of the President. The Prophet said Harrison would be elected President, but would die soon after taking office, and every twenty years after Harrison a President will die in office. From 1841 to 1963, all U.S. Presidents who had been elected in a year ending in 0 died in office. These seven Presidents were:
- 1840 – William Henry Harrison, who died in 1841 during his first term;
- 1860 – Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated in 1865 during his second term;
- 1880 – James A. Garfield, who was assassinated in 1881 during his first term;
- 1900 – William McKinley, who was assassinated in 1901 during his second term;
- 1920 – Warren G. Harding, who died in 1923 during his first term;
- 1940 – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who died in 1945 during his fourth term;
- 1960 – John F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963 during his first term.
