This is a popular Garfield biography, from the birth and childhood of the boy, through all the public career of the man, down to the distressing and the never-to-be-forgotten incidents of the assassination, sickness, death, and burial. More than one half the book is devoted to events and documents subsequent to the assassination. The earlier portion is written with a good deal of imaginative effect, though we do not observe that any serious liberties are taken with the facts. Here we have biography turned into story. The chief value of the book lies in its abundant presentation of minute personal details.
