Climb 64 Steps To The Top Of The James A. Garfield Memorial In Cleveland And You Can See All The Way To Lake Erie

The James A. Garfield Memorial in Cleveland is one of the most magnificent structures in the state. Its architecture is infused with magnificence, an impressive tribute to one of our most beloved presidents. Garfield was at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station in Washington D.C. when he was shot. The wound was not initially fatal, but a lack of hygiene on the part of his doctors caused an infection that ultimately took the president’s life. Upon his passing, the president was temporarily interred in a part of Lake View Cemetery. Why? Well, because it would be almost an entire decade before his final resting place was completed. Today, it is open to the public and it’s a destination every American citizen deserves to see.
