Did 7 Presidents Die From a Curse? [POLL]
Do you believe in curses or coincidences? Back on this day in 1839 it is said that an Indian Chief put a curse on American Presidents.
How weird is it that seven presidents died consecutively in office when they were elected in a year ending in a zero? The curse starting in 1840 and ending in 1960.
The curse is called The Curse of Tippecanoe or Tecumseh’s Curse.
I found a video that explains this curse in more detail. But the list of presidents included in this curse or legend is as followed by the webiste Periodic Presidents:
1840: William Henry Harrison – Died in office of pneumonia
1860: Abraham Lincoln – Assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in Ford’s Theatre
1880: James A. Garfield – Assassinated by Charles Guiteau in a Washington, D.C. train station
1900: William McKinley – Assassinated by Leon Czolgosz in Buffalo, New York
1920: Warren G. Harding – Died in office, possibly of ptomaine poisoning that progressed to pneumonia
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt – Died in office of a massive cerebral hemorrhage
1960: John F. Kennedy – Assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas
In 1980 there was an attempted assassination on Ronald Reagan, but he survived. I have read that many believe that he survived and the the curse was broken because of Nancy Reagan's belief in psychics and astrology. What do you think? Watch the video below before you decide anything.
