Book Description:
Fame did not interest Lucretia Garfield, wife of our twentieth President. In 1882, and again in 1887, she was invited to have her biography included in books about distinguished or famous American women. She refused in both cases stating that she was not distinguished. The story of James A. Garfield’s spectacular rise to the presidency of the United States has been told many times. But the forceful influence of his wife, Lucretia, has received little attention. So successful was she in staying out of the public eye that her name gradually vanished from sight. This new book explores the life of this accomplished and fascinating woman.
