#2 Zachary Taylor Assassination
In 1850, President Zachary Taylor died. According to the doctors who examined his body, the cause was acute gastroenteritis. According to the skeptics, Taylor may have been murdered due to his thoughts on slavery. He did not want slavery to move out West, and that upset many residents of southern states. His vice president was more agreeable to pushing slavery westward, so with Taylor’s death, the southern representatives could get what they wanted.
