Introduction
 
The Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, fought 10 weeks after the Battle of Gettysburg, was the second deadliest battle of the Civil War and was surpassed in carnage only by Gettysburg. (See Ten Bloodiest and Costliest American Civil War Battles.) James Garfield, furthermore, served as Major General William S. Rosecrans' Chief of Staff at Chickamauga. Four months after becoming President of the United States, Garfield was shot in the back by a disgruntled office seeker and died two months later on September 19, 1881, the anniversary of the Battle of Chickamauga.
