Well, it’s about time that I write a post; but, I have the misfortune to confess that such great ineptitude is imbuing my writing that I feel embarrassed to write at length. So, taking a cue from two of our other writers, this post will mostly consist of another’s words. I had the pleasure to finished reading Candice Millard’s masterful work titled Destiny of the Republic, which delves into the details and individuals surrounding James A. Garfield’s assassination. James A. Garfield character created a powerful impression on me, reminding me of my childhood hero, Theodore Roosevelt. Unable to fulfill my wish of writing an article on this sadly forgotten president, here is a link to James G. Blaine’s eulogy. I hope that everyone finds reading about Garfield’s character and accomplishments worthwhile.
Happy Independence from British Tyranny Day!
