The second President to be assassinated, James Garfield, like Abraham Lincoln, had great potential that was cut short by an assassin's bullet. President at a time of great political, social and industrial change, Garfield wanted to spearhead that innovation, but never had the chance. Written in the first person and in real time, this faux-autobiography is chock full of historical facts and is yet riveting and pertinent. PARCC formatted questions and a writing prompt are included for assessment.
