On July 2, 1881, President James A. Garfied was walking casually through a reception room in a Washington, D.C. railroad station. At the other end of the room, near an exit, stood a 39-year-old attorney, Charles Guiteau. When the president reached the center of the room, Guiteau fired twice, hitting the president in the left shoulder and in the back, as shown in this undated photo of a drawing made by an unknown artist. Garfield died Sept. 19. Guiteau was executed for the crime. (AP Photo/New York Public Library)
