Excerpt from The Republican Leaders: Biographical Sketches of James a Garfield, Republican Candidate for President, and Chester An; Arthur, Republican Candidate for Vice-President

In the summer of 1862, when everybody supposed. The war was going to end in a few months, a number of officers who had gained distinction in the field were taken up at home and elected to Congress. Among them was General Garfield, who was' nominated by the Republicans of Joshua Giddings' old dis triet while with his brigade in Kentucky.' He had no knowlv edge of any such movement in his behalf, and when he accepted the nomination he did so in the belief that the Rebellion would be subdued before he would be called upon to take his seat in the House, in December, 1863. His nomination was partly the result of his military fame and partly of a desire on the part of the friends of Giddings to defeat the man' who had pushed him out of Congress four years before. Garfield's popularity made him the most available man in the district for this purpose. He was elected by a majority of over ten thousand. He continued his military service up to the day of the meeting of Congress. Even then he seriously thought of resigning his position as a Representative rather than his major-general's commission, and would have done so had not-president Lincoln made a personal appeal to him to enter the House and give the administration the help of his military experience in passing measures for filling up the army and pushing the war to a conclusion. Had he remained in the army he would have had the command of a corps in Thomas' army.
