The lasting impact of Pres. Garfield

Though his presidency only lasted six and a half months, James Garfield made an outsized impact on the office. Historian C.W. Goodyear joins guest host John McCaa to discuss the tumultuous political landscape that catapulted Garfield, why he was considered a progressive by the public, and how today’s schisms are not unlike the discord of late-1800s America. His book is “President Garfield: From Radical to Unifier.”
