  • Found on the Capital grounds near the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial and Capital Reflecting Pool is the Statue of former President James Garfield, who was unfortunately assassinated in 1881 after just a few months in office. The statue was sculpted by John Quincy Adams Ward in 1887, who also notably created the famous George Washington statue, which stands in front of Federal Hall in New York City. The monument is of President Garfield in suit and overcoat, resting his hand on an open book or perhaps a bible, with his other hand crossing his chest. The pedestal of the James Garfield Monument is also quite nice. It was designed by Richard Morris Hunt in a Beaux-Arts like style, featuring an allegory of three male figures which represent the three careers of Garfield during his life, soldier, scholar and statesman. In the end, this is a nice statue, its located between the Capital and the Botanic Garden, making it quite convenient to see if you are covering these attractions as part of your visit to Capital Hill or the western end of The Mall during your trip to DC.

  • The James A. Garfield Monument was built to commemorate James Abram Garfield the 20th President of the United States assassinated in 1881.

  • A memorial for one if the early presidents of US and one of the few who was assassinated whole in the office if I am correct

  • A nice memorial featuring President James A. Garfield, who was assassinated a few blocks away where the National Gallery of Art is today. Common drop-off point for bus groups and the nearby US Botanic Garden is a lovely respite from the urban jungle outside.

  • Best free parking space in DC. Reach before 9 and you will get a spot during weekends.
