Title:
Destiny of the republic : a tale of madness, medicine, and the murder of a president
Summary:
Candice Millard chronicles the life of President James A. Garfield, from his upbringing to his untimely death. Garfield's short time in office was devoted to cleaning up the corruption that was rife in a country still reeling from the Civil War. However, everything changed when Garfield was shot in the back by a disgruntled office worker. While the president's health slowly declined, a power struggle erupted over control of the administration, and the country's fate hung in the balance.
