President James Garfield Dies
On this day in 1881, President James Garfield succumbed to the wounds inflicted 80 days earlier by an assassin, an enraged and potentially mentally unstable political-office seeker. Despite Garfield’s doctors’ best efforts, they could not find and remove the two bullets lodged in his body. He had only been in office for just under four months.
