Now in a groundbreaking new book, “Assassinations, Threats, and the American Presidency: From Andrew Jackson to Barack Obama” (ISBN: 978-1-4422-3121-4), historian Ronald Feinman investigates the countless assassination threats and attempts on 16 presidents, as well as three important candidates and five living presidents today, and how they were directly threatened with assassination, ranging from the first known threat to Andrew Jackson in 1833, to threats to Barack Obama in late 2014. Feinman elaborates on the six who were killed, three wounded, and ten unhurt as well as some failed attempts which could have resulted in fifteen different men becoming President of the United States.
