Summary:

A short biography of the 20th U.S. President. Garfield was raised in humble circumstances on an Ohio farm by his widowed mother and elder brother. Before he was elected president in the Republican party he was first elected to Congress in 1862 as Representative of the 19th District of Ohio. Then to the Senate in 1880. His presidency lasted just 200 days—from March 4, 1881, until his death on September 19, 1881, as a result of being shot by assassin Charles J. Guiteau on July 2, 1881. (Summary by Wikipedia and wtomcho)

    Overall a great introduction to the life of one of America’s lesser known presidents. Seems a shame such a principled and able man was cut down before bringing his values to bear in the country. Narrator was slightly above average for a LibriVox recording. Easy to listen to his voice but he does stumble a time or two and occasionally has poor breath control.
