Legacy: Garfield was elected to the House of Representatives 17 times, more than any other president and a testament to his popularity. His presidency lasted barely 4 months, yet he managed to make a mark. Adamant to end political corruption, he refused to give supporters jobs in his administration. His assassination was instrumental in the passage of the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act. Garfield called for civil service reform in his inaugural and supported it as president in the belief that it would make government more efficient. The reform act passed as a memorial to the fallen president. 
 
Trivia: Last of the 7 presidents born in a log cabin; first left-handed president and first ambidextrous president; first president to campaign in both English and Spanish; knew Latin and Greek; won election by less than 10,000 votes (1/10 of 1% of voting population); greeted people by barking like a dog; shot at age 49 by an assassin and died of blood poisoning 11 weeks later.
