Before the Secret Service

Andrew Jackson

1835 - Would be assassin Richard Lawrence made an attempt to assassinate President Andrew Jackson. First Lawrence's gun misfired. He pulled out a second gun and it just didn't go off. Nobody noticed this going on except President Andrew Jackson, who was no stranger to physical confrontations. The president attacked Richard Lawrence with his cane. They had to pull Andrew off Richard.

I bet that was the last time that happened.
