Speaking of Middle Creek and Garfield
- I am now reading and highly reccommend Kenneth D. Ackerman's book DARK HORSE: THE SURPRISE ELECTION AND POLITCAL
MURDER OF PRESIDENT JAMES A. GARFIELD. The same figures we talk about in our group appear in later life
here in the book, and it is just pretty interesting history for anyone who would also be interested in the
ACW. It's a story about the waning influence of Grant [last hurrah for sure, trying to get the nomination] and
also the Shermans [the senator and the general].
