Rare original newspaper from the Cincinnati Commercial dated 1st Edition The Morning of September 20th 1881. This newspaper gives a detail vivid description of his final moments of Garfield's life. His death was a great shock to the nation as it was believed he was recovering from his wounds.
Garfield is the first Ohio President to be assassinated while in office. The other being William McKinley. Oddly enough Ohio born President's have died in office on four occasions. The first being William Henry Harrison last being Warren Harding.
Thank you for your interest and consideration.
