Theodore Roosevelt
Theodore Roosevelt (1858�1919)

Address at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, October, 14, 1912. Just before entering the auditorium at Milwaukee, an attempt was made on Theodore Roosevelt's life. TR was shot by John Schrank, who had been having disturbing dreams about TR's predecessor, William McKinley and also thought that no president should serve more than two terms.
Schrank spent the rest of his life in a mental institution. He died shortly after Franklin Delano Roosevelt, TR's fifth cousin, was elected to a third term. Schrank had stalked TR for thousands of miles before getting a clear shot at him in Milwaukee. Schrank was caught on the spot.
