Zangara was immediately charged with four counts of attempted murder.  He was not charged initially with the wounding of Cermak, as authorities waited to see if the mayor's wounds would prove fatal.  The State charged Zangara for attempting to murder Franklin Roosevelt, Russell Caldwell, Margaret Kruise, and William Sinnott.  Zangara was found guilty on each count and sentenced to four consecutive twenty-year terms. On March 6, Mayor Cermak died from complications stemming from the shooting.  The same day, Zangara was indicted by a grand jury and charged with first degree murder in the death of Cermak.  His trial began on March 9 and ended on March 11 with a guilty verdict and a death sentence.  Zangara was transported to the Florida State Prison at Raiford, where he was executed on March 20, 1933 - To open use the password Customer77496  The password is case sensitive: Customer77496

Franklin D. Roosevelt Assassination Attempt FBI Files - Joseph Zangara (alias Guissepi Zangara) was an Italian immigrant who attempted to assassinate president-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt. Zangara had a strong hatred towards all persons in positions of authority.  On February 15, 1933, Zangara attended a speech given by Roosevelt at Bayfront Park in Miami, Florida.  When Roosevelt finished his talk and was preparing to leave, Zangara pulled out a pistol and opened fire.  A bystander deflected the assassin's aim by pushing his arm into the air.  Zangara wounded five people who had been near the president-elect, two of them seriously.  Most critically injured was Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak, who was struck by the bullet in the chest which then lodged in his spine. Zangara was immediately charged with four counts of attempted murder.  He was not charged initially with the wounding of Cermak, as authorities waited to see if the mayor's wounds would prove fatal.  The State charged Zangara for attempting to murder Franklin Roosevelt, Russell Caldwell, Margaret Kruise, and William Sinnott.  Zangara was found guilty on each count and sentenced to four consecutive twenty-year terms. On March 6, Mayor Cermak died from complications stemming from the shooting.  The same day, Zangara was indicted by a grand jury and charged with first degree murder in the death of Cermak.  His trial began on March 9 and ended on March 11 with a guilty verdict and a death sentence.  Zangara was transported to the Florida State Prison at Raiford, where he was executed on March 20, 1933 - To open use the password Customer77496  The password is case sensitive: Customer77496

SLAVERY
African-American Slavery: California Fugitive Slave Case: Stovall v. Archy - Legal papers from the only known Federal Fugitive Slave case tried in California.

African-American Slavery - District of Columbia Slave Codes - Slavery in the United States was governed by an extensive body of law developed from the 1640s to the 1860s. Every slave state had its own slave code and body of court decisions. All slave codes made slavery a permanent condition, inherited through the mother, and defined slaves as property, usually in the same terms as those applied to real estate. Slaves, being property, could not own property or be a party to a contract. Since marriage is a form of contract, no slave marriage had any legal standing. All codes also had sections regulating free blacks, who were still subject to controls on their movements and employment and were often required to leave the state after emancipation. When the District of Columbia was established in 1800, the laws of Maryland, including its slave laws, remained in force. Additional laws on slavery and free blacks were then made by the District. By Southern standards its slave codes were moderate. Slaves were permitted to hire out their services and to live apart from their masters. Free blacks were permitted to live in the city and to operate private schools. By 1860 the District of Columbia was home to 11,131 free blacks and 3,185 slaves.
