"Tippecanoe and Tyler too" was one of the most famous presidential campaign slogans in American history, and it helped elect William Henry Harrison as the 9th President of the United States. He then served only 30 days before dying of pneumonia, becoming the first President to die while in office.

"Tippecanoe" was a reference to the Indian village where Harrison defeated Chief Tecumseh's Indian confederation at the Battle of Tippecanoe. "Tyler" was a reference to Harrison's running mate (for Vice President), John Tyler, who later became President upon Harrison's death.
