How a Schizophrenic Changed American History
Factual information you never heard before,
presented in an exciting narrative form with illustrations.
(Disappointed office-seeker, indeed!)
To schizophrenic Charles Guiteau his Divine Inspiration to “remove” President Garfield was real to him even as he dangled from a rope. Garfield’s agony is chronicled elsewhere. This focus is on the delusional world of his shooter. Some actions are fictionalized to dramatize the actual story. It took Guiteau five tries to shoot Garfield and there were at least seven attempts on his life.
Detailed Work Of Art
We hear so often the tails of John Wilkes Booth, and Lee Harvey Oswald. James Garfield is little talked about today, but he certainly was the president of this great Union. Charles Guiteau, the madman that killed the president, is highlighted in amazing depth in this book. Many characters that Guiteau met along the way are examined as well. The research that the author put into this book is extremely extensive, but he keeps the readers enthralled with new twists everywhere. I would give this five stars if it wasn't for the spelling errors that are in this piece, which can be found blatantly every so often. But, it still does not take away from the enjoyability of this work of art.
