Alabama Governor George Wallace (above) was shot five times by Arthur Bremer
(below) while campaigning as a Democratic candidate for president in Laurel,
Maryland. One of the bullets lodged in Wallace’s spinal column and he was left
paralyzed permanently from the waist down. Three others were wounded in the
shooting and also survived. Bremer was found guilty and sentenced to 63 years,
53 years after an appeal in a Maryland prison for the shooting. After 35 years of incarceration, Bremer was released from prison on November 9, 2007.
