Rest In Peace: Alexander Haig dead at age 85

Haig died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where he was surrounded by his family, according to two of his children, Alexander and Barbara. A hospital spokesman, Gary Stephenson, said Haig died at about 1:30 a.m. 
Haig died of complications from an infection he was fighting. Most people will remember Haig for is statement that he was in control at the White House, following the assassination attempt on President Reagan. However, Haig had a very long career spanning three administrations.
