In the Line of Fire: Presidents' Lives at Stakeby Judith St. George
The American presidency is the most powerful position in the world. It is also one of the most dangerous. In the two centuries since the office was established, four presidents have been assassinated: Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley, and John Kennedy. Seven other attempts have been made on the lives of the presidents. Award-winning author Judith St. George examines each assassination, as well as the life and career of the president, the assassin's motivation, the policies of the newly sworn-in vice-president, and the effect each assassination had on the nation.
