News of the September 5, 1975, assassination attempt on President Gerald Ford’s (1913-2006) life struck a chord deep in the American psyche as it had only been twelve years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme was the first woman to attempt an assassination of an American president. Interestingly, only seventeen days later, while leaving a hotel in San Fransisco, California, another attempt was made on Ford’s life by Sara Jane Moore, who actually fired off a round at the president.
