Till now, many Americans still miss his great achievement and admire him. The Atlantic gave him the fourth prize of the top 100 people who has great influence on America. Thus we can see how much he devoted to this country (Franklin).
The drama of what happened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in turmoil. The unhinged assassin 's half-delivered strike shattered the fragile national mood of a country so recently fractured by civil war and left the wounded president as the object of a bitter behind the scenes struggle for power over his administration, over the nation 's future, and, hauntingly, over his medical care. A team of physicians administered shockingly archaic treatments, to disastrous effect. As his condition worsened, Garfield received help by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, worked around the clock to invent a new device capable of finding the bullet. Meticulously researched, epic in scope, and pulsating with an intimate human focus and high-velocity narrative drive, The Destiny of the Republic will stand alongside The Devil in the White City and The Professor and the Madman as a classic of narrative

Throughout time and history, literature and art, the topic of civil discipline has always been an issue of debate and war. More than once people both innocent and guilty have died affirming their beliefs on the subject, effectively making them a martyr. To Kill a Mockingbird, a story set during the Great Depression by Harper Lee, critically analyzes this topic of punishment and forgiveness, and the consequences of unjustly condemning the innocent.
