Murder of a President Extended Preview

President James Garfield was just four months into his presidency when he was shot by a deranged office-seeker named Charles Guiteau. After his death that September, Garfield became a symbol of lost opportunity for a nation in transition.

Based on Candice Millard’s bestseller, “Destiny of the Republic,” American Experience’s “Murder of a President” premieres January 5 at 9/8c on PBS.
