The Wallace Shooting and George Wallace Fight Back Life

During an outdoor rally in Laurel, Maryland on May 15, 1972,
George Wallace, the governor of Alabama and a presidential
candidate, was shot by 21-year-old Arthur Bremer. Three
others were wounded, and  Wallace was left paralyzed from
the waist down.

The next day, while fighting for his life in a hospital, he won
major primary victories in

Michigan and Maryland. On June 8, Shirley Chisholm, the
first Black woman elected to Congress and one of Wallace’s
opponents for the Democratic nomination,
famously visited
him in the
to wish him well. He remained in the
hospital for several months, bringing his third presidential
campaign to an irrevocable end.
