(1) First attempted assassination on an American President took place as Jackson left the Capitol building for the White House. The gunman "fired" twice with two different guns. Both times the guns "flashed" but did not fire. [With these old guns a small amount of powder was ignited by the flint which should in turn cause the "explosion" to expel the bullet. A "misfire" occurred when the powder "flashed" but did not cause the explosion.] Although old and frail, Jackson would not stand for such impudent behavior. After the first flash, the 68 years old Jackson charged the gunman who then pulled a second gun and fired as Jackson flailed away with his cane. The attacker went to the ground, was subdued by officials and held for police.
(2) Technically, Teddy Roosevelt was an ex-President at this time but after four years of William H. Taft, he was running again. Unable to win the Republican Party nomination, he was shot on his way to a rally for the Progressive (Bull Moose) Party. He delivered a speech lasting 90 minutes with the bullet still in his chest, then he went to see a doctor.
(3) He was President-elect, due to take office on March 4th. He was not injured.
(4) During Truman's second term the White House was under renovation and the Trumans were living across the street in the Blair House. Two Puerto Rican nationalists attacked the entrance from the street, killing one police officer and injuring another. Truman heard the commotion and watched from a window on the second floor. Thanks to the bravery of police he was never in direct jeopardy. The assassins were part of an organization which became known as the FALN, the same group of bomb terrorist (with the same agenda; independence for Puerto Rico) which, in September 1999, had more than a dozen of their members released from prison and pardoned by President Clinton.
(5) The two attempts on Gerald Ford are the first, second and only attempts by females on the life of a President. He was not injured in either case. (See NOTE below).
(6) The second time (after Jackson) a President was shot while in office and survived. Reagan, a Republican President, was shot in the chest while leaving the Washington Hilton Hotel where he had addressed a labor meeting. Before entering surgery he displayed his good humor by expressing hope that the surgeons were Republicans.
NOTE: Two women who pointed guns at President Ford but did not shoot anyone are in maximum security, locked down tight. A man, who six years later shot President Reagan, gravely wounded Press Secretary James S. Brady, and wounded two law-enforcement officers, is held in minimun security with spacious green grounds where he is often seen strolling about, and is allowed weekend leaves from incarceration to spend leisure time with family and friends.
