THE DEATH OF THE PRESIDENT
Does it make a difference how a President dies as to how we feel about him?
The Curse !!! - Have we beat it?
8-6-00 - DREAM - I was doing a web page on my computer
| 10-4-04 -
The following dream follows one I had yesterday about
the Tecumseh curse against the Presidents of the United States
elected in a year ending in 0.
10-03-04 - A psychic message was given to me today:
"Soon again another American President will be assassinated - Bush"
the dream, I was looking at a map. I couldn't tell exactly where
|11-3-04 - DREAM - I was looking at a cartoon panel from a
George Bush and his family were watching the election returns on
The assassinated presidents were Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley
William Henry Harrison - Ninth President - 1841
The "curse" actually started with William Henry Harrison in 1840.
The Whigs, in 1840 presented their candidate William Henry Harrison as a simple frontier Indian fighter, living in a log cabin and drinking cider, in sharp contrast to an aristocratic champagne-sipping Van Buren.
Harrison was actually of the Virginia planter aristocracy. He was born at Berkeley in 1773. He studied classics and history at Hampden-Sydney College, then began the study of medicine in Richmond.
Suddenly, in 1791, Harrison switched interests. He obtained a commission as ensign in the First Infantry of the Regular Army, and headed to the Northwest, where he spent much of his life. In the campaign against the Indians, Harrison served as aide-de-camp to General "Mad Anthony" Wayne at the Battle of Fallen Timbers, which opened most of the Ohio area to settlement. After resigning from the Army in 1798, he became Secretary of the Northwest Territory, was its first delegate to Congress, and helped obtain legislation dividing the Territory into the Northwest and Indiana Territories. In 1801 he became Governor of the Indiana Territory, serving 12 years.
His prime task as governor was to obtain title to Indian lands so settlers could press forward into the wilderness. When the Indians retaliated, Harrison was responsible for defending the settlements.
The threat against settlers became serious in 1809. An eloquent and energetic chieftain, Tecumseh, with his religious brother, the Prophet, began to strengthen an Indian confederation to prevent further encroachment. In 1811 Harrison received permission to attack the confederacy.
While Tecumseh was away seeking more allies, Harrison led about a thousand men toward the Prophet's town. Suddenly, before dawn on November 7, the Indians attacked his camp on Tippecanoe River. After heavy fighting, Harrison repulsed them, but suffered 190 dead and wounded.
The Battle of Tippecanoe, upon which Harrison's fame was to rest, disrupted Tecumseh's confederacy but failed to diminish Indian raids. By the spring of 1812, they were again terrorizing the frontier.
In the War of 1812 Harrison won more military laurels when he was given the command of the Army in the Northwest with the rank of brigadier general. At the Battle of the Thames, north of Lake Erie, on October 5, 1813, he defeated the combined British and Indian forces, and killed Tecumseh. The Indians scattered, never again to offer serious resistance in what was then called the Northwest.
Thereafter Harrison returned to civilian life; the Whigs, in need of a national hero, nominated him for President in 1840. He won by a majority of less than 150,000, but swept the Electoral College, 234 to 60.
When he arrived in Washington in February 1841, Harrison let Daniel Webster edit his Inaugural Address, ornate with classical allusions. Webster obtained some deletions, boasting in a jolly fashion that he had killed "seventeen Roman proconsuls as dead as smelts, every one of them."
But before he had been in office a month, he caught a cold that developed into pneumonia. On April 4, 1841, he died--the first President to die in office--and with him died the Whig program.
Harrison was referred to as the hero of "Tippecanoe" hence the campaign slogan "Tippecanoe and Tyler Too!" John Tyler was the governor of Virginia who became president upen Harrison's death. He sided with the Confederacy in the Civil War and his name was removed from the list of presidents in the White House.
A legend states that Harrison was cursed by an Indian Shaman for a massacre of Native Americans at the battle for which he became famous!
Harrison was a famous 'Indian Fighter' in the time period 1800-1815 - the battle of Tippecanoe took place in 1811, but the "curse" was the result of Harrison personally executing the great Indian chief Tecumseh in 1813!
A few years later, Harrison resigned from the Army and entered politics. He ran against Martin Van Buren in 1836 and lost; he ran again and won in 1840 but contracted pneumonia only a few months after the inauguration and died on April 4, 1841. Notice that the date April 4, 1841 is exactly 140 years to the week that President Ronald Reagan was shot! To put it another way- Harrison contracted his fatal disease and was probably bedridden on March 30 1841 although he actually died a week later.

President Abraham Lincoln: Elected in 1860. On April 14, 1865 John Wilkes Booth came up behind Mr. Lincoln and shot him in the back of the head near point blank range. He died the next morning. (actually, probably killed by doctors probing for bullet, but he would have been a "vegetable" at best had he lived)

President James Abram Garfield. Elected in 1880. On July 21, 1881 Garfield was boarding a train in Washington DC when he was shot by Charles Giteau. The President died on September 19,1881. assassinated (Actually, Garfield was definitely killed by his doctors probing for bullet; he would have completely recovered otherwise -- the doctors who thought the bullet went where in fact it did were overruled by their elders who thought otherwise, and who stuck unclean metal probes into the President's wounds in vain attempts to locate the bullet, introducing infection and making brand new holes and paths that just confused them all the more. The metal detector they tried would have worked to find the bullet, but they didn't think to move him off the metal bedsprings, so instead they kept poking, believing that Alexander Graham Bell's invention was useless.)

THE MARTYRED PRESIDENT
President McKinley - Elected First term - 1896 - Elected Second term - 1900 - Shortly after 4 o'clock on September 6, 1901when one of the throng which surrounded the Presidential party, a medium-sized man, of ordinary appearance, and plainly dressed in black, approached as if to greet the President. Both Secretary Cortelyou and Mr. Milburn noticed that the man's hand was swathed in a bandage, or handkerchief; reports of bystanders differ as to which hand. He worked his way amid the stream of people up to the edge of the dais until he was within two feet of the Chief Executive. The President smiled, bowed and extended his hand in that spirit of geniality which the American people so well know, when suddenly the sharp crack of a revolver rang out loud. McKinley may have been saved if doctors knew where the bullet was lodged. Since he was shot at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY there was an interesting new invention on display only a few yards from where McKinley lay -- the X-Ray machine! If they had carried him those few yards to this exhibit, doctors could have determined the exact location of the bullet, and would have probably been able to save his life. But as fate would have it, they did not consider the possibility and he died some days later from his wounds.
