James Garfield was elected as the United States' 20th President in 1881, after 9 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. His Presidency was impactful, but cut short after 200 days when he was assassinated. Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau, at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station in WDC, less than 4 months into his term as the President.

Garfield died 11 weeks later on September 19, 1881, the 2nd of 4 Presidents to be assassinated. His Vice President, Chester A. Arthur, succeeded Garfield as President. The last of the log cabin Garfield attacked political corruption and won back for the Presidency a measure of prestige it had lost during the Reconstruction period.

Less than 4 months after his inauguration, President Garfield arrived at the Washington railroad depot to catch a train for a summer's retreat on the NJ seashore. As Garfield made his way through the station, Charles Guiteau raced from the shadows and fired 2 shots point blank into the president. One grazed Garfield's arm; the other lodged in his abdomen. Exclaiming, "My God, what is this?" the president collapsed to the floor remaining fully conscious, but in a great deal of pain.

He suffered greatly from these wounds and eventually died from them, slowly, painfully with inadequate medical care.
