Charles Guiteau pleads not guilty...

Item # 599395

October 15, 1881

THE CLEVELAND LEADER, Cleveland, Ohio, October 15, 1881

* James A. Garfield assassination
* Charles Guiteau pleads not guilty

The front page has one column headlines that include: "'NOT GUILTY'", "Guiteau's Plea in the Washington Criminal Court", "The Abject Coward Taken Before the Judge in Safety", "The Assassin's Trial Set for November Seventh" and more.  Loads of text, too much to photograph all. This is 1st report coverage on Charles Guiteau pleading not guilty for the assassination of President James A. Garfield. Nice to have from Garfield's hometown paper.

Other news and advertisements of the day. Complete in 8 pages, a little margin wear and tear, otherwise good.
