3  Abraham Lincoln, known as “Honest Abe” was the 16 th President of the United States.  He was President during the Civil war, and opposed the expansion of slavery.  President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, on April 14, 1865.  The assassination took place days after the civil war had come to an end.

4  John F. Kennedy was the 35 th President of the United States.  President Kennedy was in office during the Cuban Missile Crisis, which nearly resulted in the third world war between the US and Soviet Union.  John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, on November 22, 1963.  The ten month investigation sparked the possibility of a conspiracy, and the assassin, Oswald was gunned down before he could stand trial.

5  James A. Garfield, 20 th President, was shot on July 2, 1881. He died 11 weeks later due to infections caused by the bullet wound.  William McKinley, 25 th President, was shot in a music hall on September 6, 1901. He passed away 11 day later.  Both of the assassins were tried in court and sentenced to death.  Garfield’s killer was hung, and McKinley’s killer was severely beaten by police at the scene and was electrocuted nine days later.

6  There have been more than 20 attempts to kill Presidents of the United States.  This includes Presidents in office, before they were inaugurated, as well as after their term in office was up.  Andrew Jackson beat down his assassin with his cane after both of the would be killer’s pistols misfired.  Other presidents who were targeted include; Franklin D. and Theodore Roosevelt, Nixon, Reagan, George H. W. and George W. Bush, Clinton as well as our current President Obama.
