An unemployed English house painter named Richard Lawrence attempted to assassinate Presdient Andrew Jackson in 1835. It was the first time anyone ever attempt to kill America’s leader.
Lawrence was taken into custody by bystanders including Congressman Davy Crockett. That possibly saved Lawrence’s life as Jackson was beating him with his cane.
Lawrence was found not guilty be reason of insanity — he claimed to be King Richard III – and was incarcerated in mental institutions until his death on June 13, 1861.
