Why does this need a yellow box? Yellow boxes are for quizzes where all the answers are from a thin category. "Which State Did This Happen In?" would be a yellow box quiz, because otherwise you could type random state names and fill in answers. This quiz does not fit that model.

I'm typing "Burr" and thinking, "What other VP shot somebody while he was in office?" Cracked up when I saw the other answer. Still can't believe Cheney got away with that. Not even a slap on the wrist.

The Democratic-Republican party also had presidents (namely Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe). Note that this is generally considered a distinct party from either the modern Democratic party or modern GOP.

Also, there are almost certainly monopolies missing there. For one, United Aircraft & Transport was also broken up into what is now Boeing, United Airlines, and United Technologies (merged into Raytheon a month or so ago).

If your counting Roosevelt for being shot after his presidency you should count those who were shot before.

Monroe was shot during the Battle of Trenton

Jackson took part in many duels and was shot.

Hayes was shot and wounded during the Civil War
