52 in 52 Week 48: Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard

Millard has done it again in an excellent book that weaves together history, biography, medical discovery. River of Doubt is a hard act to follow, but she followed it well! I did not know much about the circumstances surrounding the Garfield shooting. So interesting! Garfield had the potential to be a very good president. He certainly seemed to be a wonderful man. 

I couldn't help but think that American doctors, who refused to accept documented evidence that germs are real, were very responsible for his death. HOW IRRESPONSIBLE and arrogant on their part. UGH.

This was a great read!
