Garfield's career began to escalate at the beginning of Rahu Mahadasha, and throughout his decades in public office, he supported the concept of government-funded education for all citizens and their families regardless of race or creed (Rahu the Mixer).
Mom was, by all accounts, an extraordinarily capable woman. She was the salient influence in James' life.

James Garfield didn't die from the gunshot wounds from his assassin's gun; he died of blood poisoning after doctors and experts (including Alexander Graham Bell) tried to remove the bullet from his back with their dirty fingers and instruments, causing him to linger in pain for 80 days before dying of cardiac arrest due to septic toxicity.

However Garfield notoriously disliked the man, an during an era when divorce caused socially punitive high scandal unfairly demonizing the woman, he supported his mother unconditionally during her divorce claiming that his step-father was abhorrent and abusive.

Pundits opined that had he survived the assassination, Garfield would have suffered political ignominy due to his extramarital affairs and impending divorce from his unhappy wife.
