Presidential Candidate George Wallace Was Shot May 15, 1972

George Wallace was the controversial Governor of Alabama and was campaigning to be the next President of the United States, an election that would be held in November, 1972.  The incumbent was President Richard Nixon.  Among the most prominent contender’s was Sen. Ed Muskie, South Dakota’s own Sen. George McGovern (who would ultimately be the Democrat’s candidate and lose the general election in a landslide) and….
