  • Giuseppe Zangara was an unemployed bricklayer who on February 15, 1933 made an unsuccessful attempt on the life of President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt. Chicago's Mayor Anton Cermak received the fatal bullet instead. 14 days after Cermak's death from peritonitis on March 6th, Zangara sat in the electric chair at Florida's Raiford prison, and when asked by Sheriff Dan Hardie if he had anything to say, replied "Push da button". He was put to death in the electric chair at Raiford on March 20, 1933.
