Event Description:
Join us for our CASTLE Bonus Program, a live virtual program provided by the Senior Learning Network. CASTLE Bonus Programs are provided the first four Tuesdays of every month, and are included in your CASTLE Membership. Program Overview: At first glance, Abraham Lincoln and James A. Garfield have some obvious similarities: they were both bearded Republican presidents struck down by assassins.  But there's much more to the story than that!  Lincoln and Garfield knew one another and shared many similar views.  In fact, without Lincoln's intervention, James Garfield might never have served in Congress or become President of the United States.  But there were also some stark differences between the two as well, and Garfield privately expressed frustration with President Lincoln.  This presentation will explore many of the similarities and differences between the nation's sixteenth President, Abraham Lincoln, and its twentieth President, James A. Garfield.
