James Garfield (1831-1881) was the 20th President of the United States, and the only one to serve as a clergyman while in the White House.[1] He was assassinated by a deranged gunman, Charles Julius Guiteau, who may have sought to make the Vice President, Chester Arthur, the next President.

Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, attempted to find the internal bullet with his own invention, an induction-balance electrical device. All attempts at removing the bullet were unsuccessful, and Garfield died on September 19, 1881 from an infection and internal hemorrhage.[2] He served as President for six months and fifteeen days
