Twentieth President: James A. Garfield - 1 comments



James A. Garfield was the second President to be assassinated, and served the second-shortest term in office (after Ben Harrison, who caught a cold at his inauguration). He was shot by Charles J. Guiteau, who then exclaimed, "I did it and I want to be arrested! Arthur is President now!"

At least Guiteau was enthusiastic about the assassination!
