Timeline

1882 - In the year that Eva Morris was born, on January 5th, writer and lawyer Charles J. Guiteau was found guilty of the assassination of President Garfield.

He was sentenced to death -although his lawyer plead insanity - and hanged five months later, on June 30th.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).
