The Shadow of Tecumseh Curse over the White House
This book by the Russian-language American journalist Alexei Orlov refers to events of the 1830s and the following century of American history. Between 1840 and 1960, all American presidents elected in years that are multiples of 20 have been cursed by the Indian Chief Tecumseh and died in office, either by natural death or assassination. Orlov’s book discusses the tragic lives of these presidents. The first of them, William Henry Harrison, was elected in 1940, and the last, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, in 1960. Ronald Reagan, who was elected in 1980, was severely wounded. George W. Bush, elected in 2000, narrowly avoided the fate of his bi-decennial predecessors. Has the Tecumseh curse lost its power in the 21-st century? No one knows. Let's not jump to conclusions before the forthcoming 2020 election.
