Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth who wanted to overthrow the federal govt. James Garfield by Charles J. Guiteau because he failed to secure a federal post. William McKinley by Leon Czolgosz who didn't like one of his speeches. John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald - there are many conspiracy theories to this.
