William Henry Harrison was the ninth president of the United States who served from March 4, 1841 to April 4 of the same year. Before that, he was a senator, representative, governor and military general. During a battle in the War of 1812, he was believed to be cursed by a Native American known as Tecumsah. This curse was associated with presidents seeming to die every twenty years, starting with Harrison. Other than that, however, Harrison was the first Whig president and defeated Martin Van Buren in the 1840 election.
William Henry Harrison was born on February 9, 1773, in Charles City County, Virginia. He was the last president to be born before the United States become a country.
Harrison died in the White House on April 4, 1841, causing him to serve the shortest ever tenure as president.
