Thought out our history we had many great presidents and some not so great presidents. Let me ask some questions to you guys about the presidents. Do you know who was the first president to be assassinated was? What about the presidents who survive assassination? How many were impeachment? Or any of the presidents scandals that happen? Well I am going to talk about all of these today in this paper.
To answer some of these questions the first topic I’m going to talk about is president assassinated and attempts. All together there are four assassinated and six attempts. I’m alone going to talk about five of the attempts because Andrew Jackson was the first to be survived an assassinated but it happen before the Civil War. However the first president to be assassinated was Abraham Lincoln (U.S. Presidential assassinations in history). He was shot in the back of the head on April 14, 1865 at Ford’s Theater by John Wilkes Booth (Death of Lincoln). The second president to be killed in offices was James A. Garfield; was shot before four mouths in offices (U.S. Presidential assassinations in history). President Garfield was shot on July 3, 1881 and die on Sept. 19 (President James Garfield dies). The next president to be assassinated was William McKinley. He was shot September 6, 1901 and die on September 19 from gangrene that was undetected (U.S. Presidential assassinations in history), (President William McKinley is shot). The last president and hopefully the last to be assassinated is John F. Kennedy (JFK). JFK was shot on November 22, 1963 and die on the scene by Lee Harvey Oswald. (John F. Kennedy assassinated). As I was saying before I’m only talking about five out of the six attempted assassinates. The second assassinated attempt was on October 14, 1912 and the president at the time was Theodore Roosevelt. He was on his way to make a speech when he got shot, but
he wouldn’t go to the hospital until his speech was completed (Klein). The third attempt was on Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). On the day was February 15, 1933; Giuseppe Zangara try to kill FDR (Fdr escapes assassination). After FDR President Gerald Ford was next to survive assassinated too two young woman try to kill him but never succeed (Gerald Ford survives First assassinaton attempt). The last assassinated attempt was made on Ronald Reagon. The assassinated attempt happen on March 31, 1981 by John W. Hinckley, Jr. the FBI had an extensive investigation called REAGAT with this assassinated (FBI Records: The Vault).
The next topic I’m going to talk about is Presidential impeachment. We only have two presidents that have been impeached in our presidents’ history and their names are Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. To start things off I’m going to talk about Andrew Johnson being impeach. Johnson was impeached on February 24,...
