William Tecumseh Sherman died just a few days after his 71st birthday.
After Tecumeh's death, Tenskwatawa allegedly predicted that if Harrison was elected president he would die in office, and so would presidents elected every 20 years thereafter. This was supposed to be in retaliation for Tecumseh's death. While there is no proof The Prophet ever said such a thing, the prediction proved true for Harrison - Harrison died while in office in 1840, as did Lincoln elected in 1860, Garfield elected in 1880, McKinley elected in 1900, Harding elected in 1920, Roosevelt elected in 1940, and Kennedy elected in 1960. Ronald Reagan, elected in 1980, broke the curse but was almost assassinated while in office, and Bush, elected in 2000, completed his two terms.
