200 Years- Birth
150 Years- Presidency
150 Years- Death
Did you know that President Garfield is the only assassinated president to not have his assassination spot marked?
Until recently, there was nothing explaining what happened on that fateful day.
Currently, there are wayside signs, put up by the National Park Service on the National Mall side of the National Art Gallery, but the actual spot is not visible.
A group of dedicated people are working to change that. Led by the James A. Garfield Civil War Round Table, efforts are in motion to erect a proper monument to commemorate the assassination of the 20th President.
