Since the American Revolution, has there ever been an organized attempt to overthrow the US government?
I'm not intending to start one--I prefer our "peaceful overthrows" every four to eight years at the ballot box--but I think it says something about the United States that attempted overthrows don't happen that often, if they even happen at all.

Does the assassination or attempted assassination of a president count?

I meant that by would you consider Kennedy's assassination to be an overthrow. I'm not recommending violence.

The civil war coupled with Lincoln's assassination would definitely count as an attempted overthrow. Regan being shot by a crazy person would not.
