An extraordinary legend has woven in lathe to the Indian chieftain Tecumseh (1768-1813), Chief of the shawnee or shawano, tribes who spoke the language algonquian and concentrated around Ohio. In 1795, they were forced to withdraw from their lands.

Tecumseh allied to the British against the Americans, who hated for the way in which had persecuted his people. The chieftain was killed in battle.
But earlier, embittered by the loss of their lands, he threw a curse foreshadowing that those who were elected Presidents in years ending in zero would have a tragic end.
William Harrison, the ninth President of the United States, was elected in 1841 and died in the month of assuming the position. Lincoln was elected in 1860; Garfield in 1880; MC Kinley was re-elected in 1900. Warren Harding died suddenly in 1923, returning from a trip to Alaska; He had been elected in 1920. Kennedy in 1960.
