Garfield was a self-made man who came from a modest background, having been raised in relative obscurity on an Ohio farm by his mother and brothers. He graduated from Williams College, Massachusetts in 1856. Two years later, he married Lucretia Rudolph. From 1859-61 he served as an Ohio State Senator and practiced law starting in 1860. Garfield also served as a Major General in the Union Army during the Civil War, and fought in the battles of Middle Creek, Shiloh and Chickamauga. He was first elected to Congress in 1863 as a Representative of the 19th District of Ohio.
After serving 9 terms in Congress, Garfield became President on March 4, 1881. During his short presidency, he increased U.S. naval power and restored legitimacy to a corrupt Post Office Department. On July 2, 1881 President Garfield was shot by Charles J. Guiteau and died on September 19th after serving just 200 days in office.
