Before becoming President, Arthur was a practicing attorney in New York City. He also served in and was instrumental in reorganizing the New York State militia. Eventually, he would be promoted to the rank of brigadier general by then, New York Governor, Edwin Morgan.
Arthur became president after the assassination of President James Garfield in 1881 and remained in office until 1865 and dying in New York City in 1886.
Arthur and his wife are buried in Rural Cemetery, Albany, N.Y.
