Our 20th president, James A Garfield, will be the subject of this month's discussion. James Garfield was elected as the United States’ 20th President in 1881, after nine terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. His Presidency was impactful, but cut short after 200 days when he was assassinated.
Join us as we read through the U. S. Presidents in order, and also learn more about our U. S. history. We meet every other month on the even months, 4th Wednesday, with December being an alternate date to be determined (holiday conflict). You may read any material you like. We order a small selection of books for you to choose from. You may also go to internet sites such as whitehouse.gov, Wikipedia, or the presidential library site for the particular president we discuss.
