    This clip currently has no date range.

    A note at the end of the shots list says "N.B. Mayor Cermak was shot in Miami during an assassination attempt on President Roosevelt by Zingara in February 1933" - although shot on February 15 1933, Cermak survived until March 6.

    Despite the note at the end of this clip, "Giuseppe Zingara" should read Giuseppe Zangara.
