Years ago when I first visited the Capitol I was surprised by the amount of marble devoted to the memorializing of James Garfield My cynicism about politics led to the conclusion that he was a political hack whose Republican friends appropriated a lot of money to convince visitors that he was a great President despite serving only a few months in office before being assassinated by a raving lunatic Ms Millard s fascinating book exposed my ignorance Garfield was an extraordinary man who had the potential to become a great president As a bonus the author treats us to a frightening portrait of his murderer as well as a critical examination of the primitive medicine of the time that contributed to his death Finally we get a mini biography of Alexander Graham Bell who did a lot than invent the telephone All whose ignorance of Garfield is as expansive as mine ie almost everyone should read this little treasure of a book
