Zachary Taylor and Warren Harding

On July 4, 1850, President Zachary Taylor fell ill and was diagnosed by his physicians with cholera morbus, a term that included diarrhea and dysentery but not true cholera. Cholera, typhoid fever and food poisoning have all been indicated as the source of the president's ultimately fatal gastroenteritis.

More specifically, a hasty snack of iced milk, cold cherries and pickles consumed at an Independence Day celebration might have been the culprit. Taylor died five days later at 10:35 p.m. in the White House on July 9.

At the end of July, while traveling south from Alaska through British Columbia, Harding developed what was thought to be a severe case of food poisoning. He gave the final speech of his life to a large crowd at the University of Washington Stadium at the University of Washington campus in Seattle, WA. A scheduled speech in Portland, OR, was canceled.

Harding died in his hotel room of either a heart attack or a stroke at 7:35 p.m. on August 2, 1923.

End of Presentation

The position of president of the United states is one of the most powerful positions in the world. For that reason, and others, it is imperative that the presidents be protected from harm.

With each new presidency, comes a variety of issues, concerns, and in some cases crazies, who are seeking to harm the president. Protecting the president has evolved over time and now consumes an entire protection team with sophisticated methods….but that has not always been the case.

The presentation covers various events and people behind those that were meant to harm our presidents.
