My Choice

DA'S_ROCKET.png We chose Garfield because he was in the civil war. He was a famous general because he led a brigade that won against confederate troops. He also did a lot of great things. He was also well known by a lot of people. He was also a professor 2 years before he became president. When he died, a lot of people cried for him.
