United States, POTUS 7

Andrew Jackson was the first President to almost be murdered. While he was at a funeral, Richard Lawrence took out a pistol and shot at him at point-blank range. The gun misfired. He took out a second gun, and it too misfired. Jackson then tackled the man to the ground.

This was pretty much how his life went.

His wife, Rachel, was never First Lady, having died before his presidency.  -30-
