August 8, 1974 : Richard Nixon Resigns From Presidency
On this day in 1974, in a radio and television broadcast from the Oval Office, Richard Nixon announced that he was resigning as President of the United States. His decision arose from the near-certain threat of impeachment following the Watergate Scandal.  Gerald Ford, his successor, granted him a full pardon, but over 70 others were convicted of crimes.
