James Abram Garfield was the second U.S. President to be assassinated. On July 2, 1881, he was walking through the Sixth Street Station of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad [the current location of the National Gallery of Art]. He was accompanied by sons James and Harry, Secretary of State James G. Blaine, and - ironically - Secretary of War Robert Todd Lincoln. For the latter was the son of Abraham Lincoln, the first U.S. President to be assassinated. President Garfield was going to catch the train to Williamstown, Massachusetts. He was the scheduled speaker at his alma mater, Williams College. But he never boarded the train. Charles Julius Guiteau, a lawyer whose applications for the U.S. consulship in Paris had been rejected repeatedly, shot him in the arm and then in the spine. The second bullet couldn't be found. The President suffered through infections, fevers, extreme pain, bronchial pneumonia, and blood poisoning before dying on September 19, 1881.
