James Garfield, in his Civil War uniform. As a politician, his biggest detractors mistook something crucial about him: he was a poor hater but a very good fighter. He'd been thru a lot and knew how to size up a new battle. "Of course I [hate conflict]," he wrote, "but if it is brought to my door the bringer will find me at home."
