PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From the PBS Website: Murder of a President is the story of James Garfield, one of the most extraordinary men ever elected president, and his assassination by a deluded madman named Charles Guiteau. The story follows Garfield's unprecedented rise to power, his shooting only four months into his presidency, and its bizarre and heartbreaking aftermath. The two-hour film is based on Candice Millard's bestselling and Edgar Award-winning Destiny of the Republic.

A possible connection to our century could be that James Garfield attended the Republican Convention with no intention of being the party’s candidate yet left the conventions as a presidential candidate. This film is excellent in an American Literature or American History class. It can also be used in a Biology or Human Anatomy class as well as many think the cause of Garfield’s death may have been bad doctors.
