James A. Garfield is usually cast aside as a "minor" president from the late nineteenth century, one of the cold, bearded, and old statues that fill parks across the country. However, Garfield stood out among his peers as a consummate politician who was also able to live out his faith in a very corrupt political landscape. When his life was shortened by the assassin's bullet, the nation was more upset than when Lincoln died, and shortly after, almost every home in the country had some memorial to the twentieth president. Garfield's involvement with the Restoration Movement defined who he was, and long before he was widely known on the political stage, he was known and considered to be one of the leaders in this independent and fast-growing church group. This biography ties together Garfield's politics and religion to show how he really let his light shine in the world.
