Tissue guard separating portrait between Garfield and his wife has small square cut out of his but tissue protects both illustrations. Comes with acetate sleeve for book protection. A detailed history of the twentieth President including his death, who though largely forgotten today, remains very interesting and is one of the few U.S. presidents to have been assassinated. He served as a Union General during the Civil War and commanded a brigade at Shiloh, one of the bloodiest battles of the war. Garfield was the last of the seven Log Cabin Presidents and was also one of three presidents to serve during the year 1881. He was shot by Charles J. Guiteau, a disgruntled federal office seeker. The bullet lodged near his spine and could not be found by doctors. Alexander Graham Bell invented a metal detector to try to find the location of the bullet but the machine kept malfunctioning, apparently due to the metal framework of the bed Garfield lay in. Because of the rarity of metal bed frames at the time, the cause of the malfunction was not discovered. It is believed that the constant probing of the bullet wound with unsterile instruments led to blood poisoning and eventually death. Garfiled died on September 19,1881, becoming the nation's second president to be assassinated. In the eighty days between the shooting and his death, he performed only one official act, the signing of an extradition paper. Bookseller Inventory #
