Time for another Useless Fact.

20th US President James Garfield was the second United States President to be shot in office. Doctors tried to find the bullet with a metal detector invented by Alexander Graham Bell, but the device failed because Garfield was placed on a bed with a metal frame, and no one thought to move him. He died on September 19, 1881.

This has been another Useless Fact.
