Who Was the First President to Face Enemy Fire: Lincoln or Madison? Historian Anthony Pitch, author of "The Burning of Washington: The British Invasion of 1814", says that James Madison, accompanied by several cabinet secretaries, came under British rocket fire in the August 24, 1814 Battle of Bladensburg, that preceded the "Burning of Washington". Almost exactly 50 years later - July 11-12, 1864, Abraham Lincoln would come under Confederate fire as he visited Ft. Stevens, just a couple of miles from the White House. close
