On this date, July 2, 1881, one of my beloved American Presidents, James A. Garfield (the 20th President of the U.S.A) was assassinated; he died 11 weeks later on September 19, 1881. Charles J. Guiteau was executed by hanging on June 30, 1882. He was executed less than a year after the assassination and after 10 months after the President died on September 19, 1881. What a swift and sure execution! Most important of all, he is guilty beyond any doubt.
