This monument was originally carved to memorialize William Bodey, founder of the town of Bodie. But, when President Garfield was assassinated, the fickle public changed the inscription, turning it into a tribute to Garfield instead. Bodey's grave remained unmarked for almost 100 years. (bio by: Lonnie DeCloedt)
