James A. Garfield is often remembered mostly for being the second American president to be assassinated, after Abraham Lincoln. For a while, historians considered his presidency inconsequential because of his short time (only 200 days) in office.

The truth is that Garfield led an exemplary life of service before becoming president; serving in the Ohio State Legislature, as a commander in the American Civil War, and as a United States congressman for nine terms!

This book offers a comprehensive look at the life of James A. Garfield, and sheds light on how Garfield's wife, Lucretia, pioneered the idea of a presidential library—now an important part of every president's legacy.
