President Reagan Shot - March 30, 1981

On this date thirty years ago, President Reagan and three others were shot and wounded by John Hinckley, Jr. as they were leaving the Washington Hilton Hotel. This postcard refers to that event. It has a real adhesive bandage stuck to the front of the card. The caption on the back is "WHAT A BOO-BOO!"

This video was made for the 25th anniversary of the assassination attempt.


  1. O, what a terrible event on the video. I was a child when he was the president.

  2. That band-aid stuck to the postcard... so '70s!
