Commemoration of the Death of President Garfield

Saturday, September 26—1 p.m.

The Funeral of President James A. Garfield

President Garfield's funeral was held in Cleveland 134 years ago today: September 26,
1881. Learn more about what one scholar called "the funeral of the century," an event that was larger even than President Abraham Lincoln's 1865 funeral.

Immediately following will be a presentation by Lake View Cemetery staff exploring the history of the beautiful Garfield Monument, where President and Mrs. Garfield are interred.

Both programs will be presented in the visitor center auditorium and are free of charge.
