Gage died in 1860 following a series of epileptic seizures, just 12 and a half years after his accident. In 1866, Harlow requested that the family exhume the body. The skull was removed and sent to Harlow, along with the iron tamping bar that had been in Gage's possession at the time of his death. Today, both the skull and the iron rod can be seen at Harvard Medical School's Warren Anatomical Museum.
