Deep in the Historical Abyss: The Assassinations of
Presidents Garfield & McKinley and Why They Have
Become Less Memorable in the Minds of the American
Public

Description

In the history of the United States of America, four Presidents have been fatally wounded by the gunfire of an assassin. While the assassinations of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy have gained ultimate infamy, the murders of Presidents James A. Garfield and William A. McKinley have fallen far from the memory of the American public. Their assassinations remain lost in the abyss of historical analysis, housed in the bottom of the iceberg of Presidential assassinations throughout American history. Even history students have little recollection that these assassinations ever occurred and history textbooks unjustly offer tiny blurbs to present their realities. The question itself is rather puzzling; historians and scholars have simply taken little time to acknowledge the existence of these assassinations in American history.
