President Assassinated !!

On September 6, 1901, President William McKinley was shot while attending the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Leon Czolgosz, a Polish citizen associated with the Anarchist movement, fired two shots at McKinley who was greeting the public in a receiving line.

McKinley died September 14, whispering the words of his favorite hymn, "Nearer my God to Thee, Nearer to Thee." He was succeeded by his vice president, Theodore Roosevelt.

Czolgosz's execution in an electric chair was reenacted in a short feature shot by Edwin Porter and released, along with films of the World's Fair and the McKinley funeral, by the Edison Company in 1901.

Trivia... how many presidents have been assasinated, and can you name them? (I don't mean attempts, I mean deaths).

Four presidents have been killed in office: Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley and John F. Kennedy...

I beleive Gas is right, proceedings were started for all three, but the formal verdict has never been leveled.

Two:
Only seventeen federal officers have been impeached: two presidents , one cabinet officer, one senator and thirteen federal judges.
Two Presidents have been impeached (Andrew Johonson and Bill Clinton ) but no Presdident has been removed from office through the trial that is required after the impeachment.
Andrew Johnson and William Jefferson Clinton have been the only two Presidents actually impeached by the House of Representatives.
Clinton was one of only two Presidents in American history to be impeached
