About this product
- DescriptionThere is a lot more to the life of President James Garfield than being shot. He was an educator, clergyman, and congressman who carried on those duties with considerable distinction, as well as being a mathematician who discovered, after everyone else for thousands of years had t, an alternative Euclidean proof. While he is hored at Williams College, where his son Harry was longtime president, and as a huge statue on the grounds of the United States capitol, he deserves more attention and this new edition of a useful biography may encourage that.
- Author BiographyJames Sanks Brisbin was a Union Army General in the American Civil War, as well as a teacher, a lawyer, and an outspoken anti-slavery orator. Along with his biography of Garfield, Brisbin wrote biographies of Ulysses S. Grant, and Schuyler Colfax, as well as many works on the Great Plains of America. Westphalia Press is housed in a historic building at 1527 New Hampshire NW in Washington, which was a residence for many years of Harry Garfield. Dr. Paul Rich keeps up on Garfield affairs as a member of the James Garfield Historical Society and the Disciples of Christ Historical Society, and has collected a vast trove of Garfield memorabilia for the house.
