Poor Garfield is mostly described as the first left handed president and the
last president to be born in a log cabin. He even had a large orange cat
named after him. There was no time to make his mark in history except
through his death.
Historians have no doubt that it wasn't Guiteau's bullet that killed
Garfield. It took him 80 days to die but only after the physicians of the
day continually probed the bullet wound with unclean fingers and non-sterile
instruments. He suffered greatly in the intense heat of summer and was
awake through the whole ordeal. Alexander Graham Bell was even called in
and he used a type of metal detector in hopes of locating the bullet but to
no avail. Garfield finally gave up the ghost on September 19, 1881. The
doctors located the bullet during the autopsy and Guiteau was hanged on June
30, 1882.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
