Maureen (booksmyth) | 4 comments Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine and the Murder of a President

Who knew President James Garfield was such an interesting, endearing man and so ill-served by the doctors of his day. And who knew Alexander Graham Bell invented an "x-ray" device just for the President, as well as a precursor to the iron lung. Great narrative read, providing fascinating glimpse into the socio-political context of Garfield's presidency and death at the hands of his demented assassin

Donna Peake | 25 comments sounds like an interesting book. I think I will put that one on my list to read.
