Sale Price $324.00
JAMES A. GARFIELD. Photograph Mount, unsigned. Sepiatone, 2¼x4 overall, image 2x3¼ (two surfaces). Captioned at lower margin: "President James A. Garfield". No photographer's imprint on verso. James Abram Garfield (1831-1881) served as 20th U.S. President from March 4, 1881-September 19, 1881, a total of six months and 15 days (the second shortest presidential term). Garfield had risen to the rank of Major General in the U.S. Army during the Civil War, before resigning his commission to take a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives (1863-1880). A political moderate, Garfield was the compromise choice of a deadlocked Republican Convention in 1880, nominated on the 36th ballot and elected President by a narrow margin. Garfield's assassination by a disappointed office seeker helped advance the cause of civil service reform which he had advocated. Both photograph and mounting sheet are lightly soiled. Minor show through of mounting glue (not at facial image). Overall, fine condition.
