only ONCE, James Garfield, has anyone gone directly from House to POTUS. Virtually impossible
Five things to expect in a GOP Senate takeover When the Republican Party moves to take over control of the United States Senate in January, life will be different in Washington in some significant ways as a Congress controlled fully by the GOP will need to deal with a lame-duck President. While it’s impossible to predict what will happen in the next two years, experts who track the often difficult relationship between President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans expect a few certainties in coming months. Here’s a quick look at five issues to follow as the Republicans get their chance to run the Senate: 1. Mitch McConnell becomes the new Senate Majority Leader. That seems to be a near certainty that McConnell will run for the position with Senator John Cornyn of Texas poised to become the Senate Majority Whip. However, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas hasn’t backed McConnell’s campaign. 2. Ted Cruz will draw lots of attention. Cruz told the Washington Post on Sunday that he will go on the attack a ...

As a young boy, James Garfield worked on a boat on the Ohio and Pennsylvania canal. One pitch black night, James fell overboard, which might not be such a big deal, except for the fact that since he was on the night watch, there was no one near to know he fell overboard or to rescue him. Groping for a hold, he caught a rope that was Providentially hanging over the edge. After his rescue, considering that it was God that saved him from drowning, he turned his life around, (literally) and went home, choosing to become a teacher. Upon receiving his college education, Garfield went on to become a minister of the Gospel. Following a revival meeting that he preached, he wrote a letter to a fellow minister reporting on the results. This minister of the Gospel did not feel that his position in the church excluded him from political involvement. In addition to preaching the Word of God, he was also a College President, a State Senator, a Major General in the U.S. Army, a U.S. Representative, elected to be a U.S. . ...

Became President of the United States after James Garfield died from an assassin's bullet
I'm stepping out soon, but here is a an excerpt from my reading lastnight. According to Ryan Holiday, ... President James Garfield paid his way through college in 1851 by persuading his school, the Western Eclectic Institute, to let him be the janitor in exchange for tuition. He did the job every day smiling and without a hint of shame. Each morning, he'd ring the university's bell tower to start the classes - his day having long begun - and stomp to class with cheer eagerness. Within one year of starting at the school he was a professor - teaching a full course load in addition to his studies. By his twenty-sixth birthday he was the dean. This is what happens when you do your job- whatever it is--- and do it well. These men went from humble poverty to power by always doing what they were asked to do-and doing it right and with real pride. And doing it better than anyone else. In fact doing it well because no one else wanted to do it. Sometimes, on the road to where we are going or where we want to be we ...

My Dad: Taught me how to gap spark plugs, how to swim, how to cat fish, how to rescue and help homeless animals, how to be strong, how to work hard and how to play. He taught me to stand on my own too feet. He taught me the importance of family and how important it is to spend time with those you love. I always loved setting on the porch waiting for him to come home, on sunny days he always always had a caterpillar tucked away in his pocket for me. He taught me how to respect and how to gain respect. He taught me the importance of being a good wife and mother. Although he is not here with me today he would have wanted me to wish all the fathers a happy fathers day. So I hope it is a wonderful one for all of you. And I want to send a thank you to my father James Garfield Daivs for teaching me to be the person I am today. I hope I make yo proud Dad I Love YOU, Your Angel, Carolyn

My Father. My Son. We were visiting Dad and Jan in Cleveland, and it was a Sunday. What shall we do to entertain ourselves? My father says "Let's go to the Cemetery!" At the Lake view Cemetery in Cleveland there were bands playing, folks picnicking, a do it yourself chalkboard gravestone (with colored chalk), and of course, the James Garfield Memorial. I had a blast. Felix looks a little cynical about the whole affair. I've included a photo of me with antennae, to round out the whole experience. I love you Dad!

My daughter gave me this book by Sarah Vowell, knowing my interest in JFK assassination books. This book is a first-person account of the author's decision to visit the birthplaces and museums of the Presidents who have been killed in office. Sounds macabre, but it's not. She comes up with interesting stories about not only Kennedy and Lincoln, but James Garfield and William McKinley as well. I now have three more of Vowell's books, all on totally different subjects than this one. She is a regular contributor to NPR's "This American Life", where I think my daughter discovered the author. I recommend the book; the author has kind of a quirky writing style that I enjoyed very much.
I am thankful to have experienced a father's love. I miss my father, James Garfield Askins, Jr. and my grandpop, James Garfield Askins, Sr. I also miss my other dad, Lionel Darty, Sr. You were as good to me as if I was one of your daughters. I wish you all were here so that my beautiful daughters could meet you and know you. I will always love you.
Marry me! With... Jay Baruchel and James Marsden and Andrew Garfield and all these lovely people. XD
Three men served as president of the U.S. in 1841: William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, and Martin Van Buren. Actually, it's happened twice. In 1841, the year started with Martin Van Buren as president. The job was then assumed by the winner of the 1840 election, William Henry Harrison. Harrison died of pneumonia 31 days after he was inaugurated, making Harrison's vice president--John Tyler--president. In 1881, Rutherford B. Hayes started the year as president. Just as Van Buren did before him, he relinquished the office to James Garfield, who had been elected in 1880. Garfield was assassinated in 1881, making his vice president--Chester A. Arthur--president.

Presidential Footwear Facts •William Dudley established his footwear business in 1850 in the basement of his Newark, New Jersey, home. That same year, he handcrafted a pair of shoes for President Millard Fillmore. This started a tradition of craftsmanship that now spans more than 150 years. •Abraham Lincoln had the largest foot of any U.S. president, wearing a size 14 shoe. This was Johnston & Murphy’s largest documented shoe produced since the company began its presidential footwear program. •During Ulysses S. Grant’s term starting in 1869, he requested that William Dudley craft knee-high riding boots. Johnston & Murphy still has the original last, the wooden frames that help determine the shape and size of shoes, used to make President Grant’s boots. •While in office, Rutherford B. Hayes wore a diminutive size 7. He had the smallest foot of any U.S. president. •Before being assassinated in 1881, James Garfield selected a pair of black plain toe boots. •Grover Cleveland, along with Wood ...

How many presidents have cheated on their wives?. .Several. Eisenhower had an affair with his driver in England during the war. Franklin Roosevelt had a mistress of long-standing who served as his private secretary, as well as other occasional flirtations. JFK had women going out the back door as Jackie was coming in the front. He was even accused of having an affair with a Russian spy during the cold war. Several of Bill Clinton's amorous adventures have been documented and several others are rumored with some evidence. Harding sired an illegitimate daughter while he was in the Senate. Woodrow Wilson became close friends with another woman . They spent considerable time together and wrote warm letters, but it is not certain that they ever were intimate. James Garfield had some sort of liaison with a married woman. So, why so much attention on Bill Clinton?. What should be told is this, he was a great president. The Republicans have gone too far. .

WHO KILLED JAMES A. GARFIELD? Most of the presidents from Ulysses S. Grant to William McKinley were Civil War veterans and Republicans. The only exception being Grover Cleveland who didn't fight in the war and he was a Democrat. I won't hold that against him because in my mind he was what we would call a good conservative today and was also one of our most honest presidents in American history. He is the only president to serve two terms but not consecutively. James Garfield was born in Ohio on November 19, 1831 and died on September 19, 1881 after being shot by an assassin. He was raised by a widowed mother and came from humble origins. During the Civil War he fought bravely as an officer in the Union Army of the Cumberland and was a man of integrity. Once he was ordered to use his men to capture a runaway slave but he disobeyed orders, telling his commander that he wasn't in the slave hunting business. In the Fall of 1862 he learned that he had been elected to Congress from his district in Ohio but he . ...

James \j(a)-mes\ as a boy's name (also used as girl's name James), is pronounced jayms. It is of Hebrew origin, and the meaning of James is "he who supplants". From Late Latin Iacomus, a variant of Iacobus, Latin form of Greek Iakobos and New Testament Greek form of the Old Testament form Jacob (Hebrew Yaakov). Biblical: one of the 12 apostles of Jesus, who possibly was also a cousin of Jesus. The King James Bible is named in reference to James I of England (16th-17th century). Spanish pronunciation of Jaime: (HYE-may), Scottish: (JAY-mee). See also Kimo and Santiago. A famous fictional character with this name is the British spy James Bond, created by author Ian Fleming. Writer James Joyce; actors James Mason, James Caviezel, James Gandolfini, Jimmy Stewart; entertainer Jimmy Durante; American Presidents Hames Buchanan, James Garfield, James Madison, James Polk, Jimmy Carter, James Monroe.

Part 3... Granted the relationships are sometimes distant 10th or 15th cousins, but in a country with hundreds of millions to choose from, this simply cannot be chance or coincidence. Gary Boyd Roberts, a genealogist at the New England Historic Genealogical Society thoroughly traced these connections in his book “Ancestors of American Presidents.” George W.

Hayes, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Teddy Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Bush is closely related to the king of Albania and has kinship with every member of the British royal family and the House of Windsor. He is related to 20 British Dukes, the 13th cousin of Britain’s Queen Mother, and of her daughter Queen Elizabeth. He is 13th cousin once removed from Prince Charles and has direct des ...

I've got news for the Republicans and the Democrats alike. I really do believe that the American people have been left with a bad taste in their mouths, by your Pro Party Politics. And the same old sell out that you do to the bankers, lawyers and special interest groups in this country. You talk the big talk. But you are all sold out to the highest bidder. Maybe in the next two elections it won't matter how much money either side pulls in and who gets bought by who. Maybe we will just kick everyone of you to the curb. As you have done us. James Garfield was the last president we had that was a FREE MAN in 1880. He made it a whole 200 days in office, before you killed him. When we got Chester Arthur, (The Father of the steel ship Navy and the National Guard) who finished James Garfield's term. Think about it Republicans and Democrats alike. NO MORE PRO PARTY POLITICS ! Why don't you do what's best for the American people, before the American people do what's best and send all (each and everyone) of you bac ...
Chester Arthur had been appointed by President Grant to the post of Collector of the Port of New York which at the time was an incredibly powerful political position. Rutherford B. Hayes "fired" Arthur in an attempt to reform the spoils system which Andrew Jackson had established and which gave Roscoe Conkling great power in New York. Conkling greatly opposed Hayes for the remainder of his Presidency forming the "Stalwart" faction of the Republican party which supported Ulysses S. Grant for President in 1880. James Garfield and Chester A. Arthur were joined together on a compromise ticket for the Republicans as the Stalwart faction which supported Grant could not get enough support to overcome the "Half-Breeds" who supported James Blaine. Arthur would become President when "Stalwart of Stalwarts" Charles J. Guiteau shot Garfield leading to his death.
This is the kind of idiocy we need to get the *** away from. A quote from another page: "Five US Presidents who sought to abolish the private-owned Federal Reserve Bank were assassinated: 1) Andrew Jackson (Survived); 2) Abraham Lincoln; 3) James Garfield; 4) William McKinley; 5) John Kennedy." Andrew Jackson had no objection to the idea of a national bank, except that the manager Nicholas Biddle would not ease credit enough to support Jackson's land speculator friends. And in any case, it wasn't the Federal Reserve and it was not privately owned. It was a government-private partnership. During the Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley administrations there was no Federal Reserve and there was no National Bank at all. They had exactly the unregulated economy many people want to see, with the predictable panics and economic instability. Not only did Kennedy not oppose the Federal Reserve, but EO 10 on which this conspiracy theory is based actually gave MORE power to the Federal Reserve because its intention ...

At the end the answer to why the world is so bad After 96 years the best kept secret in history was discovered : From December 23, 1913 , The Private Bank of the Federal Reserve ( FED ) seized U.S. and the vast majority of the world does not know. What will they and their predecessors ( Bank of America ) , declare wars , attacks ( twin towers attack in London, Madrid bombing ) , presidents (Jaime Roldos , Omar Torrijos, Kennedy , Warren Harding, McKinley was assassinated financed , James Garfield, etc. ) , dealing in weapons of mass destruction ( Carlyle , Bechtel, Lockheed Martin , Raytheon , General Dynamics, McDonnell Douglas , Boeing, Northrop Grumman ) . These bankers own the media (FOX , CNN , NBC , ABC , CBS , BBC , New York Times , Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, etc. ) use the strategy to distract the population with superficial TV programs , short-term technological products , reality shows and cartoons ridiculing family values. News of murders and crim ...
2. Assassinating the president wasn't a federal crime in 1963 Despite the assassinations of three U.S. presidents -- Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and William McKinley -- killing or attempting to harm a president wasn't a federal offense until 1965, two years after Kennedy's death. conspiracy ( 2 )

Random Fact: President James Garfield could simultaneously write in Greek with one hand, and Latin with the other.
So apparently, someone (a Black man, I should add,) whose name isn't important enough for me to go find, opined at the Value Voters Summit today that the Affordable Care Act was the worst thing that had happened to America since slavery. I just thought I would compile a list, clearly non exhaustive (and as apolitical as can be) of things worse than the Affordable Care Act in the intervening years between the Emancipation Proclamation and now. 1.) The Battle of Gettysburg (1863) 2.) The assassination of Abraham Lincoln (1865) 3.) The assassination of James Garfield (1881) 4.) The Panic of 1893 5.) The Spanish American War (1898) 6.) The Galveston Hurricane (1900) 7.) The assassination of William McKinley (1901) 8.) The San Francisco Earthquake (1906) 9.) World War I (1917) 10.) The Spanish Influenza (1918) 11.)

The original Palmer, built by Potter Palmer, burned down in the Great Chicago Fire 13 days after it opened in 1871. Potter Palmer promptly rebuilt the Palmer House Hotel, designed by architect John M. Van Osdel. Completed in 1875, it featured luxurious decor, oversized rooms, and sumptuous meals. The floor of its barber shop was reputedly tiled with silver dollars. Constructed mainly of iron and brick, the hotel was widely advertised as, "The World's Only Fire Proof Hotel." Famous guests included, for example, James Garfield, Grover Cleveland, Ulysses S. Grant, William Jennings Bryan, William McKinley, Mark Twain, L. Frank Baum, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. ~
Good old Youtube. I'm watching an oldie that I never heard of - "20 Million Sweethearts" (1934). Not a great movie but one of those wonderful old chestnuts - Ginger Rogers, *** Powell and Pat O'Brien. Yeoman Warner Bros support - Allen Jenkins and Grant Mitchell (a descendent of James Garfield?). And the Mills Brothers! And Leo Forbstein directing the orchestra - he makes a cameo - look him up and see how many great movies he worked on.
Profiles of America's Mass-Murderers Note: There has been a noted increase in the following trends: Suicides, Failed Mental Health Treatments, Political Leftism, Anarchy, Cultural-Marxism / Social Justice / Self-Entitlement, Eco-terrorism ideologies Muslim/Moslem Jihadist/Extremist ideologies The following list demonstrates that a growing trend regarding the socio-cultural and political beliefs held by "outburst", "single-event", or "spree" mass-murderers in the United States in the 19th through 21st centuries are strangely consistent. The List: The 1865 Abraham Lincoln assassin(John Wilkes Booth) was an anarchist, racist, and a separatist Confederate Democrat (chose suicide by police / police set fire and burned him alive in a barn). The 1881 James Garfield assassin(Charles Guiteau) was a disgruntled social political activist and changed his party affiliation to Democrat (he asked for the death penalty). The 1901 William McKinley assassin(Leon Czolgosz) was an anarchist and a staunch political Marxist le ...
i just confused Andrew Garfield with former President James Garfield. i guess i wouldn't have realized if spiderman was once our president
Herbert Hoover is believed to be the first lefty president, though James Garfield. could write Greek with the left and Latin with the right.
Tru. I respect the *** out of James Garfield and Grover Cleveland.
July is the month we celebrate America, and while you may think you know all about our history, you probably don't know these thirty tidbits. Read on to discover some little-known fun facts. Our Presidents... 1. George Washington's teeth were never made of wood. Human and animal teeth, even ivory, but never wood. 2. Theodore Roosevelt was a speed reader with a photographic memory. He could read an entire page in the time it took someone else to read a sentence. 3. Gerald Ford was the only President whose two assassination attempts were made by women and the only one who modeled for Cosmopolitan. 4. As a young man, Andrew Johnson was indentured to a tailor. He also made all his own clothes. 5. Lyndon Johnson started out as was a teacher at a small school in Texas. 6. James Garfield was the only president who was a minister. 7. Harry S. Truman's middle initial isn't short for anything. His parents could not decide which grandfather to name him after ? Shippe or Solomon ? so the initial honors them ...
An anarchist and lawyer named Charles Guiteau shot James Garfield in the back with a five-barrel, .44-caliber pistol called a British Bulldog in 1881. He said he chose the gun because it would look good on a display in a museum someday. No one currently knows where the gun is. -Dusty
Working on my family history book, and if what I just found is correct, my kids are related to four US Presidents. I knew about two of them (Andrew Jackson through Season's Grandma's ancestors and James Garfield through my dad's great grandma) but I just found that another branch on my dad's side is ancestors to William Howard Taft and Herbert Hoover. Yes, I am dorky enough to think this is all pretty cool
One thing I realize with today's society is that even more than my generation, today's generation believes in the illuminati. Aka evil people who want the voices of those who love and care for humanity to be silenced. Do I believe it? Well it's a fact that the "illuminati" existed from 1776 til 1798. Here's a long list of those supposedly "silenced" by the illuminati: tupac Shakur, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, bill cooper (predicted 9/11), mohandas ghandi, yhitzak Rabin, Peter tosh, Indira Ghandi, Rajiv Ghandi, Diana princess of wales, JFK Jr, John f. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr, Huey P Newton (Black Panthers), benazir Bhutto (said Osama bin laden was murdered in 2006), pope john Paul 1st, James Garfield, Lee Harvey Oswald, Abraham Lincoln, jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian jones, Kurt Kobain, Aaliyah, Dean Martin, Eartha Kidd, Lisa "left eye" Lopez, James brown, Farrah fawcett, static major, sky Saxon, Brandon Lee, Heath Ledger, bob Marley, Che Guevara, Bruce ...
presents another little known fact of U.S history: Upon the untimely death of James Garfield the presidency was turned over to Chester A. Arthur. Chet was defeated by Grover Cleveland in the election of 1884. Later congress passed the Chester-Grover act in 1903. This law forever forbade anyone named Chester or Grover from running for president. It was later expanded to include the names Rutherford, Millard, Jimmy and ***
Since when was James Garfield even a president..
I can't decide between William Henry Harrison and James Garfield.
James Garfield could write in Latin with one hand, while writing Greek with the other hand at the same time!
Sat through a lecture on James Garfield where it was completely left out that he's the first Pastor to become president.
I finished James Garfield and I was rereading the resume and I wrote Andrew Garfield a good 6 times.
Just got paid for a sketch in silver dollars. James Garfield looks shady as *** on these things.
James Garfield someone really hated, cause he was assassinated. Chester Arthur gets instated, four years later he gets traded.

My life has turned into thinking everything that ever happened I can make up. So basically James Garfield was a cat
James Garfield would have been a more popular President if he was a cat and then still nobody would have liked him.
James Garfield was the President who didn't veto a single bill.
Received $1 coins depicting John Tyler, Franklin Pierce, James Garfield, and Rutherford B. Hayes. Looking for a reason to abolish the Fed?
Outstanding to see your thoughts on Chester Arthur...James Garfield would have changed entire political landscape if not shot.
James Garfield, William McKinley, Abraham Lincoln, John F Kennedy. they knew to much that's why they were assassinated
Answer to my trivia question:James Garfield.20th President was last to be born in a log cabin.Also last to go from Speakership to W.House.
Also spent 2+ hrs today listening to an audiobook about James Garfield dying. It's a wonder I'm not hallucinating.
I don't know. Not him. James Garfield did a pretty good job.
The nation's 44th President has vetoed only two bills as he approaches the 2.5-year mark into his administration, which Smart Politics finds is the most infrequent use of the president's veto power among the 23 men who have served since James Garfield died and Chester Arthur took office 130 years ag...
Robert Lincoln is the only man in U.S. history known to have witnessed the assassinations of three different presidents, his father, James Garfield, and William McKinley. After he saw anarchist Leon Czolgosz shoot McKinley, he vowed he would never again appear in public with an incumbent president

The 17 people have been convicted of mostly minor offenses. During his time in office, Obama has issued 39 pardons, the fewest of any president since James Garfield in 1881.
Every President That Has Opposed The Federal Reserve Has either Been Assassinated Or There Was A Documented Assassination Attempt On His Life. From Andrew Jackson, to Licoln, James Garfield, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. Also and the Russian Czar Alexander II who was working with lincoln was assassinated. The Federal Reserve is no more federal than federal express. The people that run the Federal Reserve are not only in our country but all over the world. The Federal Reserve has never been audited, *** the president isn't allowed in the Federal Reserve, or the cia, fbi, congress, or any other government entity. So first the Federal Reserve must fall. Then we must systematically dissolve our government and re-build it. That is the only way will we will make it out of this mess that we have allowed.
THE JUPITER/ SATURN PRESIDENTIAL DEATH CYCLE Ever since the dawn of the U.S. presidency there has been a very interesting cycle happening that may have to do with both the planets and numerology. It seems that U.S. Presidents seem to enjoy an expiry date exactly twenty years after their election. This is the twenty-year cycle that culminates in a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, which is believed by astrologers to be partly responsible for the assassination, or death while in office, of every U.S. President since William Harrison. It was first noted in an old edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not, published in 1934, which noted the weirdly coincidental 20-year pattern of presidential deaths between 1840 and 1920/ This is the sequence of events that the conspiracy theory is based on -- * William Harrison dies in 1860 of pneumonia * Abraham Lincoln dies in 1880 of an assassination * James Garfield dies in 1900 of an assassination * William McKinley d dies from a assassination in 1920 * Warren Harding die ...
Not a bad day thru northern Ohio when I was able to visit the William McKinley Memorial Museum & Birthplace in Niles, the James Garfield home in Mentor, and the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library and home in Fremont. Where to next? Tony Packo's in Toledo for dinner.
It's not weird that I know the exact years that William Henry Harrison and James Garfield died is it?
BHM FACT NO. 25: Pony Express rider George Monroe was also a highly skilled stagecoach driver for U.S. presidents Ulysses S. Grant, James Garfield and Rutherford B. Hayes. Monroe, who was known as "Knight of the Sierras," frequently navigated passengers through the curving Wanona Trail in the Yosemite Valley. As a result, Monroe Meadows in Yosemite National Park is named after him. Monroe and William Robinson are thought to be two of the first African Americans to work as Pony Express riders.
Did you guys know that Martin Van Buren's first language was Dutch? He learned English as a second language. Mind blown. I mentioned this to my London-raised colleague and he looked at me blankly for a minute. Then I recalled that there have been plenty of English monarchs whose first language was not English, either. I found out the Van Buren tidbit, by the way, while I was exploring the truth about James Garfield's ability to write Latin and Ancient Greek at the same time (Latin with his left, Greek with his right). Any other favorite linguistic presidential tidbits?
Written by my friend Paula, I usually have something to say or a phone call to make after her posts. This one simply got a Like. Mental illness. A cruel illness that plagues millions but stigmatized and mocked all too often. The recent tragedy of Newtown, Connecticut has once again thrust mental illness into the forefront as some boogey man. People marginalize the mentally ill but forget or simply don’t know that some of the greatest human beings were mentally ill. Many of our president suffered from depression. Calvin Coolidge, Franklin Pierce, Dwight Eisenhower, James Garfield, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, Rutherford Hayes, Woodrow Wilson. and our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln was bipolar. So was Winston Churchill who actually named his ‘depression’ cycle as his black dog Sir Isaac Newton was bipolar so was Ludwin Von Beethovan I applaud the celebrities who have come out with their mental illness which has helped awareness. These stars all suffer from bipolar disorder. Vivien Leigh (and ...
Here are some facts about Ohio:On March 1, 1803, Ohio became the 17th state of the Union. Ohio is also known as the Buckeye State. Ohio Fun Fact Alert!: The official state rock song "Hang On Sloopy". Ohio is the leading producer of nursery & greenhouse plants. Ohio has an area of 116,103 sq miles. It ranks 34th in state size. Ohio is the only state where its state flag is of a pennant design. Founded in 1788 by General Rufus Putnam, Marietta - named after the then Queen of France Marie Antoinette - was Ohio's first permanent settlement. Columbus is Ohio's state capital (even though Chillicothe was the 1st) & largest city. Did you know that half of the US population lives within a 500 mile radius of the city of Columbus? In 1899, the first full time automobile service station was opened here in Ohio. 7 US presidents were born in Ohio, being: Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B.

Via Andrew Clark Presidents, from left: Herbert Hoover, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, John Quincy Adams, Woodrow Wilson, Chester A. Arthur, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield. (Photo illustration by James Taylor; click on image for photo credits) Slowly, my fingers slid along the surface. "You know, that's made of Quincy granite," our tour guide said, as my hand went down the edge of John Adams's tomb. Across the room, my travel partner -- and future best man -- Bryan Buckler did the same to John Quincy Adams's. We were standing in a crypt a few stories underneath a church in downtown Quincy, Mass. This was the last stop on a one-week journey that led us up and down the mid-Atlantic visiting any sites related to the U.S. presidents. Or, more precisely, where they died. It all started with a phone call I made many months before. "Hey, why are you whispering?" Bryan asked. "Because I shouldn't be here," I replied. "Where are you?" "Guess." "I don't know, man." "I'm on the eighth ...
Who is your favorite U.S. President? Mine is Lincoln, but James Garfield is a close second. Garfield was a Trustee for Bethany College (which was founded by Alexander Campbell), historically associated with the church I serve. Unfortunately, my top two Presidents were both assassinated. How about you?
James Garfield was a gospel preacher, Civil War general,Congressman,Senator,& President of d United States.History will never be able 2 judge what kind of leader he might ve bin bcos he was shot by a crazed office seeker & died after only six months in office.However, d following story might be d standard one shld use in judging his conduct as President.Early Sunday morning,a group of party leaders came by d White House 2c him & discuss a bill they thought shld be passed by Congress.They were suprised when President Garfield said he had a very important appointment & wld talk 2 them later that afternoon "But Mr.President," one man asked, "What cld be more important than this?"Garfield arose & walked 2 d door, turned 2 look at d party leaders, & said, "Gentlemen, I ve an appointment at the Lord's table.' He then left with Mrs. Garfield & went to a Sunday morning Worship service.
The last U.S. president to be born in a log cabin was James Garfield.
Huntington's historical check collection is currently on display here in Central Ohio at the newly relocated Rocky Fork branch located at 380 S. Hamilton Road in Gahanna. The display features 16 checks signed by U.S. presidents. The collection is open to the public at this branch during normal business hours from now through Tuesday, February 19.

Very Interesting, "In chronological order, the known left-handed presidents are: Herbert Hoover, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. Other presidents who may have been ambidextrous or left-handed include Ronald Reagan, James Garfield, and Thomas Jefferson. If Reagan is counted as left-handed, then the United States was controlled by a left-handed president for 20 years from 1981 to 2001, which is unusual considering how rare left-handed people are in the general population."
Today's lecture: The administrations and times of Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, Chester Arthur...
I feel that beards have made such a comeback that the president should go back to having beards like Rutherford B Hayes and James Garfield!!
The 4th left-handed president in history, after James Garfield, Gerald Ford & George H.W. Bush
Fun fact: the last president with facial hair was William Howard Taft in 1913. The last one with a full beard was James Garfield in 1881.
Presidents assassinated, all by Gunfire; James Garfield, William McKinley, Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy. Attempted Assassinations of Presidents, all by gunfire; Andrew Jackson , Theodor Roosevelt-wounded, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford -twice, Ronald Reagan- wounded. Security provided for Our President and their family as well as all ex Presidents is essential. Robert Kennedy, on the verge of being Nominated for President was also assassinated, by gunfire!
Dear God, defeat H.J. Res 15 History of the 22nd Amendment: Historians point to George Washington's decision not to seek a third term as evidence that the founders saw a two-term limit as a bulwark against a monarchy, although his Farewell Address suggests that he was not seeking re-election because of his age. Thomas Jefferson also contributed to the convention of a two-term limit when he wrote in 1807, "if some termination to the services of the chief Magistrate be not fixed by the Constitution, or supplied by practice, his office, nominally four years, will in fact become for life." Jefferson’s immediate successors, James Madison and James Monroe, adhered to the two-term principle as well. Prior to Franklin D. Roosevelt, few Presidents attempted to serve for more than two terms. Ulysses S. Grant sought a third term in 1880 after serving from 1869 to 1877, but narrowly lost his party's nomination to James Garfield. Grover Cleveland tried to serve a third term (and second consecutive term) in 1896, ...
An intro to the real powers that be, time to expose the crooks that run our banking system!!! Three US presidents that were assassinated: Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and John F Kennedy had one thing in common: they all tried to print their own debt free currency beyond the control of central banking institutions. Here is what other US presidents had to say: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." - Thomas Jefferson History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance. - James Madison “Banks have done more injury to the religion, morality, tranquility, prosperity, and even wealth of the nati . ...
With a couple of exceptions, the women who've had affairs with Presidents aren't given much consideration as interesting people in their own right. I was reading about James Garfield's affair with Lucia Gilbert Calhoun (when he was in Congress) and the story mentioned that she was, at that time, a teenaged reporter for the New York Times. That was impressive enough for me to look up references to her subsequent life. I haven't found a full-fledged biography yet, but have found that she became the first woman on the editorial staff of the Times and have found some that she wrote. Did you know that a few years ago (after she rolled her SUV over in Ventura County on the 101), Monica Lewinsky moved to London & earned her master's degree at the London School of Economics? Some forget that at the time of the affair she was a White House intern, which in itself shows that she's an exceptional person.
One outline down, two to go. Too bad the one I finished was James Garfield who died early in office.

Book review of Candice Millard's A Tale of Madness, Medicine and Murder of a President about James Garfield.
It was a presidential PARTY in the donation box tonight!!! Even James Garfield was there! I don't believe that I've ever seen a James Garfield coin before, so thanks for introducing me to President Garfield, kind donor. First there were Presidents Lincoln and Jefferson chirping along with the Chipmunks song. Then, President FDR soulfully sang along with Amazing Grace. Presidents Washington and Garfield swayed back and forth as they hummed to Silent Night. Treasury Secretary Hamilton rocked out to Wizards in Winter. Finally, I heard that President Jackson had a friendly competition with Sir Benjamin Franklin, each trying to out-do one another doing the Gangnam Style dance. (Ben Franklin won, hands down!) It was quite an entertaining night, I must say! A huge THANK YOU to whoever brought Benjamin to the party! He's always welcome here, but he rarely makes an appearance. For those of you keeping up with my nightly posts, this is the 2nd $100 donation that we've had this year!!! This was actually ...
