The only president to die in office that was not elected in the years ending in "0"... Tecumseh's Curse... Harrison, Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Harding, FDR, JFK.

I didn't realize until now that early in his military career, Taylor served at Fort Knox (Vincennes, IN) and fought against Tecumseh under Harrison.

Taylor and Harding were the only two who died in circumstances that were not obvious in the cause of death.

There is not much history on the Presidents in what I refer to as the two neglected periods in American Presidential history. Van Buren through Buchanan and Hayes through Cleveland.
