Remembering A Dark Day In America: 40 Years Ago, President Reagan Was Shot

It might be hard to fathom for some, but President Ronald Reagan was shot 40 years ago this week. Reagan was coming out of the Washington D.C. Hilton Hotel after delivering a speech to the AFL-CIO’s Building and Construction Union.

As Reagan stepped out of the hotel, headed for his limousine, shots rang out.

The Secret Service did exactly what they were trained to do should this dreaded moment ever arise, and put their bodies between oncoming bullets and the president’s body.

Still, President Reagan was hit.
