James Garfield was the 20th President of the United States, though his Presidency lasted less than a year. Garfield was shot only a few months into his Presidency and died a couple of months later. Though there is limited memorabilia, therefore, from Garfield’s Presidency, campaign materials are available from Garfield’s run in 1880. There were a few buttons and the like produced, though nothing terribly innovative or exciting. Many campaign materials notably feature Garfield in uniform. Flag banners were still popular at the time, so collectors willing to pay will be able to find these on the few occasions that they come available for sale.
