Red Herring Productions presents "A Better & Nobler Man" by Sheldon Gleisser; directed by Michael Herring.
Chester A. Arthur, James Garfield’s Vice President, became the 21st President of the United States, an office he never wanted, when Charles Guiteau assassinated Garfield in 1881. The Republican Party was deeply divided between conservatives and reformers and Garfield’s assassination drew suspicion from both factions. The nation hated and distrusted Arthur. The New York Times described Arthur as “an overweight party hack”. The only kind voice Arthur hears is from Julia Sand, a young woman who began a correspondence with Arthur and helped him find the courage to heal and save a nation.
