About the Author
James A. Garfield Leading America from Frontier to Empire was written for university and college students as well as the reading general public. It is part of the book series titled First Men, America’s Presidents. The book should be of wide interest to Ohio historical societies, parks, organizations, schools at all levels, and libraries across the nation. It should be sold at Lawnfield, a National Historic site in Mentor, Ohio that once was the Garfield family home. The book should be of interest to university faculty who teach courses on the U.S. Presidency and courses in Gilded Age American history. It should also interest teachers of the survey courses on American history at all levels—K-12 through graduate school.
