Top Secrets: Presidential Assassinations

Using a wide variety of visual techniques, we reveal the surprising and outright shocking things that you never knew about America’s Presidential assassinations and assassination attempts. Bet you didn’t know that President Ronald Reagan was just seconds away from dying; that JFK survived an assassination attempt before he was even inaugurated or that Teddy Roosevelt was shot in the chest and decided to leave the bullet behind his right nipple for the rest of his life. From deranged lone gunmen (and women) to grand conspiracies to take out the President and the entire Cabinet, the business of assassinating the President is murky, shocking and endlessly fascinating.
