In 1881, James A. Garfield died by what today would be considered medical malpractice. At the time, American medics didn't believe germs existed, and so their attempts to remove the two bullets lodged in Garfield by an assassin without antiseptics led to blood poisoning and complications that ultimately killed him. The assassin, Charles Guiteau, was a disturbed and disgruntled job seeker who had been planning the operation for months. Go inside his plan to kill President Garfield.
