"A compromise for the infighting between the stalwarts and the half breeds when he was killed the stalwarts all but faded if Garfield had not been assassinated. It's possible that he would have united the Party. The process had already begun with his cabinet picks but perhaps by the time he loved office.

The two spoke privately for less than twenty minutes. The conversation Asian gave Lucretia a sense of hope. The doctors however believed that Garfield wouldn't survive the night after a more thorough examination at the White House. The doctors concluded that his liver was severely damaged throughout the night. Bliss released updates to to the public on the president's condition. The bulletins contradicted the truth claiming he was feeling better as bliss was controlling public perception. He was also consolidating his authority. After gaining the trust of both Garfield and Lucretia Bliss ordered the dismissal of all the other doctors Terry's outraged over the coup. Many of these doctors told the press that bliss was actually doing more harm than good he disputed the accusations accusations continuing to spin his own narrative eventually list called in to highly respected surgeons to examine garfield mostly mostly as a way to defuse the blame should garfield condition worsen. Both surgeons individually inspected the president the only conclusion they could come.

Eh Garfield temperature spiked to triple digits in response navy engineers created the first White House air conditioning unit by having fans blow over blocks of ice.

Hey mattress was another one made entirely of criss crossed metal wires it. It'd be a sense that the White House would have a newly invented box spring but tobel. It was a shocking revelation. That may have tainted the test. Perhaps the bullet wasn't his abdomen at all and they were looking in the wrong section of his body. Unfortunately Bell was called back to Boston before he could run another test and in his absence Garfield was once more left in bliss incompetent care.

James Garfield was sworn into office his mother Elisa. An abolitionist Frederick Douglass sat on the dais with him because he had been so preoccupied with cabinet picks. Garfield didn't have much time to who right and inauguration speech in fact he had been up until three. AM working on it when it came time to finally deliver the oration. He seemed despondent and exhausted. The one portion of his speech that seemed inspired was about civil rights for Black Americans. He promised to protect attacked the newly freed community under the rights of the Constitution as well as writing the wrongs that had accumulated during the course of emancipation and reconstruction. He reinforced his idea. That education was key. If everyone in the north and the south was literate the wounds from the war could more easily Selebi healed. He concluded the speech. Discussing Civil Service reform a topic that made the politicians especially roscoe conquering squirm in their sheets in the days and weeks that followed Garfield was busy filling positions as mentioned before the White House. I had a fairly open door policy job seekers were allowed to enter the White House and leave their resumes. It was around this time that Garfield met his future assassin Charles Toe when he presented his application for the Paris Council ship along with a copy of his speech Garfield Against Handcock Talk Garfield forgot all about Charles the moment he left. He was busy running a nation. One of the first items of business was nominating Supreme Prem- Court justice for a seat that had been vacated the previous year before leaving office. Rutherford Hayes had nominated Stanley Matthews use but the Senate didn't confirm him instead waiting for the new president to make us election. James Garfield nominated Matthews again then in the closest vote in Supreme Court judicial history. Matthews was confirmed by a single vote next on the agenda was corruption corruption in the postal service in April Garfield ordered an investigation into alleged star route corruption star route described postal routes used by private contractors designated with an Asterisk or star in the registry during the grant and Hayes administrations government officials assigned these routes routes based on bribes instead of allowing the contractors to fairly bid on them rumors of corruption involving fraudulent bidding between private of it contractors had reached Garfield ears after suffering the humiliation of the credit mobilier and cash grab scandals. He knew he needed to stop the fraudulence as quickly as possible. When word got back to Garfield that two members of his campaign were linked to the scandal he told hold his Attorney General Wayne McVeigh and Postmaster General Thomas James to not only probe this ulcer to the bottom but to cut it out as Garfield was nominating Supreme Court justices and opening investigations. He was still locked in a battle with roscoe conquering over the soul soul of the Republican Party leading into April minor government positions were still open and Conklin continued to fight for his stalwarts. Garfield eventually actually gave the stalwarts a couple of points but this annoyed his moderate secretary of State James Blaine in the middle of March the battle between Lean Garfield and conquering came to a head when he appointed Senator William Robertson a bitter rival of conch. Ling's as a collector of Customs in New York Robertson had rallied against grant at the eighteen eighty convention and conquering was determined to make sure the staunch half breed supporter had had no position within the administration but Garfield appointed him anyway. It was a sign that the president was not going to be beholden to any side livid conquering ordered Thomas James and Wayne McVeigh both stalwarts to resign their posts as attorney general and postmaster general they I met with the Presidents but Garfield convinced both men to disobey conquering and remain in the cabinet at this point word of the feud between Garfield and unconquered had reached the press outside of conquering one of Garfield biggest rivals was his own vice president Chester Arthur a stalwart who was fiercely loyal to the president's rival when the press ran headlines about the feud Arthur defended not the president but conquering as punishment punishment Arthur wasn't allowed to enter the White House for several weeks unfortunately for conquering public opinion was mostly in Garfield fields. Favor conked could read the writing on the wall. William Robertson would soon be confirmed by the Senate as New York customs collector. It would be another another embarrassment.

He firmly believed that in order order for the civil war to be truly considered victorious black Americans needed to have the right to vote but in eighteen sixty five letter to a friend Garfield revealed that the idea of black Americans becoming a political equal gave him a strong feeling of repugnance for all of his devotion to to civil rights and to abolishing slavery he still considered White People Superior James Garfield Congressional career throughout at the eighteen seventy s consisted of growing reputation of statesmanship and distaste for corruption. He was hailed for his ability to learn and study even the most boring and mundane spreadsheets finances caught his attention early on and he found himself on the committee on ways and means and the committee on appropriations by the early eighteen seventies Garfield now in his forties advocated for Department of Education. He believed that funds from public lands should be routed to pay for it however his congressional career was marred by two major scandals in the summer summer of eighteen seventy two garfield was connected to the credit mobilier scandal in which politicians received bribe money in exchange for votes that favored the Union Pacific Railroad Garfield never took the bribe but he did accept alone not realizing the implications. Congress ultimately absolved him of any wrongdoing but his association with the scandal followed him forever. The second transgression was known as the salary grab in eighteen seventy. Three Congress voted to give themselves a fifty percent raise including retroactive pay for lame doc congressman despite voting against the Bill Garfield was still chairman of the Committee of Appropriations many of his Ohio constituents several of whom we're failing to pay their far mortgages blamed him for what they considered theft by the Representatives Garfield was dejected. Clearly it was his lowest point as a congressman he had built up a reputation as honest and incorruptible then in the span of a year his name became synonymous with scandal and corruption by the mid eighteen seventies. The American people were sick of the fraudulence silence in Washington disdain for the spoils system in particular formed a groundswell finding its roots in Andrew Jackson's presidency. These spoil oil system consisted of hiring and firing civil servants based not on marriage but on political affiliation or campaign support by the time I am ulysses. s grant was president in the early eighteen seventies.

He's had promise to only serve for a single term and due to declining health. He kept that promise but in doing so the eighteen eighty. Republican election became chaos. James Garfield went into the convention in Chicago with the sense of foreboding the party was firmly divided between stalwart. Republicans led by roscoe conquering and half breed. The Republicans led by James Blaine the main issue that divided the two factions was political patronage stalwarts were in favor of tradition tradition. The spoils system and political machines half breeds wanted civil service reform. The stage was set for a stalwart versus half half breed showdown ulysses s grant running for a third term faced off against James Blaine and James Sherman but after two days of voting James James Garfield seemingly out of nowhere became the dark horse Republican nominee in the years since the civil war Garfield political radicalism Elizabeth had softened a bit going into the convention he leaned more towards the moderate half breeds his nomination represented compromise his and compromise also meant that stalwart chester a arthur was chosen to be his running mate a few months later in November of eighteen eighty. James Garfield became presence for the first and only time in US history. The offices of representative senator elect and president elect lacked were all held by a single person at the same time. Garfield was also the first sitting US representative to be elected president but now that Garfield was elected it meant that he was prone to the dangers of the office ironically. He seemed unconcerned with assassination shanna tents when General Sherman showed Garfield a letter about an increase in threats. He shrugged it off he said to Sherman assassination can be no more guarded against than death by lightning and it's best not to worry about either.

He wanted it seized Garfield believed that Lincoln was too soft on the south south. Even after Lincoln's death which he mourned greatly Garfield continued his staunch radicalism much of this passion came as a reaction to the policies of Lincoln's successor Andrew Johnson many accused Johnson of being a southern sympathizer Johnson too easily allowed politicians titians from the south back into Congress and with that came their ability to vote on legislation involving the newly freed black slaves Garfield a staunch abortion EST founded abhorrent that these southern traders were allowed to vote on laws that essentially restricted black Americans ends including school segregation and several forms of Disenfranchisement.

"James Garfield never had intentions of running for president in fact at at the beginning of the eighteen eighty Republican national convention in Chicago. Garfield wasn't even a candidates he was simply a representative from Ohio. Poo just just so happened to also be senator. Elect waiting for the upcoming term. The Republican Party was fractured. One faction was the stalwarts. It's led by roscoe coddling. These traditional Republicans wanted ulysses s grant to run for a third term on the other side or the more moderate half breeds they supported either Senator James Blaine or then Secretary of Treasury. John Sherman Garfield had thrown his support behind Sherman though mostly out of obligation to a fellow Ohioan the balloting process was long and arduous at first. I it seemed like neither of the factions would give an inch however. No candidate had enough votes to secure the nomination. It seemed as if they would be stuck in a deadlock on the second ballot. The much respected Garfield received a vote from a delegate from Pennsylvania Garfield shrugged it off clearly a throwaway vote on the next the delegates from Pennsylvania voted for Garfield again then again and then again and Garfield founded some using even flattering on the second day of voting the first few votes proved stagnant. Nothing changed but on the thirty fourth ballot Wisconsin delegates suddenly split their votes between grant and Garfield. What followed was a tidal wave of support for Garfield much to the shock of the forty seven year old senator elect at the end of the thirty six vote James Garfield the man who had no desire to run for office suddenly had three hundred ninety-nine votes twenty more than what was necessary to secure the nomination he was officially the Republican nominee soon he went onto defeat winifred hancock becoming the twentieth president of the United States. One one of the many men to campaign for Garfield was a short disheveled fellow from Illinois named Charles Guitao less than a year after stumping for for the new President Charles would shoot him twice Charlotte. Julia Tow was born on September eighth eighteen forty one on in Freeport Illinois to Luther and Jane Gaito Charles was the fourth of six children but the last to survive infancy when Charles was seven his mother passed away from unknown causes he was left to be raised by his older sister Francis and the deeply religious luther luther was a zealot who followed the teachings of John Humphrey noise noise believed in an idea called perfectionism through the power hour of prayer and the right education a person had the ability to become perfect spiritually and intellectually and thus free of Sin Luther forced his religious fanaticism upon Charles and in June eighteen sixty at the age of eighteen Charles joined noises. Oneida community ended up state New York for more information on John Humphrey Noise and the Oneida community checkout episodes thirty six and thirty seven of another podcast original colts approach the commune presented Charles with the opportunity to finally interact with women. They practiced an act called complex marriage. Essentially open relationships members were encouraged to have multiple sexual partners. Charles loved the idea of complex flex marriage. A sense of entitlement swelled in him. He felt he deserved these women. After the years of religious devotion instilled in him by his father however members of the united felt differently. Most of the women didn't participate in sexual relationships with Charles. They found his sense sense of entitlement and lack of help around the commune repulsive. They began calling him Charles. Get Out One member even jokingly referred to him <music> as a shaker. A religious sect that practiced celibacy as Charles frustration with the lack of intimacy grew a sudden belief that he was as a direct soldier of God entered his head. This intense notion grew as the years went on and by eighteen sixty six twenty five year old Charles was left Oneida believing that his godly work was needed elsewhere <music> after leaving the commune Charles Ghetto wandered around around the northeast aimlessly working odd jobs and living off a meager inheritance. Finally Charles decided to become a lawyer he wasn't is in very good at it and was said to go off on rambling tangents while in the courtroom many of his diatribes were religiously themed keeping to the belief that he was still one of God's soldiers he even quit law for a year to become travelling evangelical preacher throughout the Eighteen Seventies Charles Charles begged borrowed and stole to survive if he wasn't accepting charity Pete was scheming he attempted to scam people out of money through lawsuits lawsuits including two failed suits against the New York Herald and the Oneida community at one point during this period as a way to make money Charles is published a religious. Tome called the truth a companion to the Bible. The truth was almost entirely plagiarized from a book called the Burien Rian which was written by Oneida founder John Humphrey Noise. The book was an utter failure and Charles finally stopped trying to make money money through religion instead he found a new fixation politics at the beginning of eighteen eighty thirty nine and your role Charles Guitar was living in Boston when he read up on the political engagements of the day he discovered that he aligned with the Republican stalwarts and supporter of Ulysses s grant grant had already served as President for eight years from eighteen sixty nine to eighteen seventy six he it didn't seek a third term though it would be another seventy five years before the twenty second amendment put term limits on the presidency instead. He was was succeeded by Rutherford B Hayes. Unfortunately Hayes was wildly unpopular and it's sent the radical side of the Republican Party into a frenzy. They wanted grant back for a third term. Charles Guitao agreed with their assessment in the weeks leading up to the Republican National Convention in June in Eighteen Eighty Charles who had zero political experience spent his days writing the speech that he believed would ultimately help grand during his campaign pain. The public perception was that grant was going to win the nomination for the Republicans winifred handcock was the favourite among the Democrats Charles Arles titled His Speech Grant Against Handcock however when news came that James Garfield had won the nomination Charles simply he scratched out grants name and replaced it with Garfield with his speech in one hand and a small bag of the other Charles walked onto the deck of the steamship ship S S Donington he was headed to New York City where the Republican campaign headquarters was located Charles was ready to do his part to help get Garfield into the White House to spite his more moderate beliefs on the evening of June eleventh eighteen eighteen eighty as the SS Donington near the Long Island sound on the Connecticut River a thick layer of fog covered the water at around around eleven thirty pm the ship collided with its sister steamship the SS Narragansett Charles. Could Toko watched in horror as passengers from the Narragansett still in their nightgowns and pajamas rushed outside to see what had happened within minutes of the collision. The boiler room exploded setting the entire deck ablaze men women and children through themselves over the railing and into the water crew members from both ships attempted to rescue the drowning people in the river within thirty minutes of colliding the Narragansett sank roughly. Fifty people lost their lives. Meanwhile the stoning ten managed to stay afloat while another another ship city of New York came to its rescue when Charles stepped off the rescue ship in the early hours of June twelfth a renewed sense of purpose purpose weld within him surviving the collision confirmed that he was on the right course to fulfill his mission from God instead of traveling traveling around as an evangelist his true calling with to get James Garfield elected. No one was going to stop him. Charles Ghetto arrived in New York later that day determined to fulfil his mission he quickly printed off copies of his speech <unk> to distribute it around the city and throughout the Republican headquarters from then until the election Charles made regular trips to hotels and dining halls those were prominent republicans frequented he even managed to meet vice presidential nominee Chester Arthur and convinced him to let Charles read his speech at a small gathering with each passing day. Charles became more and more convinced that he was going to be instrumental in James's victory. He began to envision a reward for his efforts in the campaign. A console ship seemed like the appropriate thank you for all of his hard work on November second eighteen eighty James Garfield won the presidency for the next four months. Charles continued to make himself known own too powerful. Republicans still residing in New York. He knew that it was only a matter of time before Garfield began making appointments not not wanting to miss out he wrote to the president elect enquiring about becoming ambassador to Austria but he never got a response in the weeks leading up to the inauguration Charles Guitar.
