This first full scale biography of our twentieth president in over fifty years reflects not only a renewal of interest in Garfield the man as the centennial of his inauguration nears, but in the Gilded Age of American politics in which he played so influential a role Moving from the battlefield to Congress before the end of the Civil War, Garfield had a hand in almost eveThis first full scale biography of our twentieth president in over fifty years reflects not only a renewal of interest in Garfield the man as the centennial of his inauguration nears, but in the Gilded Age of American politics in which he played so influential a role Moving from the battlefield to Congress before the end of the Civil War, Garfield had a hand in almost everything of national importance for two decades, the years of peace, Reconstruction, and industrialization As a party leader he, along with his friend James G Blaine, forged the modern Republican Party into the instrument which would lead the United States into the twentieth century, and though his presidency was cut short by an assassin s bullet, he succeeded in rescuing the office from the shadows of Johnson and Grant, elevated it above the Congress, and began the accretion of presidential power that has lasted to our own day.To the public James A Garfield was a beloved nineteenth century success story, the self made man climbing from poverty to national leader, the last of the log cabin presidents But the man behind the public portrait was much complex, even contradictory He was a pacifist turned soldier, an educator turned politician, a preacher turned economist, a man of essentially literary tastes cast in the role of party chieftain Continually racked by self doubts, he nevertheless was so convinced of his destiny that he never actively sought any office and never lost an election.Allan Peskin s masterful biography combines the public and the private Garfield in a smooth flowing narrative that will fascinate the general reader as well as enlighten the scholar The Garfield story includes the account of the Ohio canal boy who worked his way through college and later became president of that same Hiram College It is the story of the minister who led Union troops through a blundering campaign in the Kentucky wilderness and emerged a national hero and a general It is the romance of the diffident husband who, some time after the wedding and somewhat to his surprise, fell in love with his wife It is the high drama of Gilded Age politics, disputed elections, and narrow victories during the era in which the modern, industrial, continent spanning United States was being forged and many of its social and political attitudes taking shape Finally, it is the story of assassination at the hands of a religious fanatic before the character of the president could truly be tested in office.From these rich materials a fully rounded portrait of Garfield and his time emerges He rises above the image of good natured backslapper and forgotten if martyred president to which history has relegated him He becomes a figure worth the major treatment Dr Peskin has accorded him.
