William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States, was born on January 29, 1843, in Niles, Ohio. He came from a modest background and worked his way up through education and military service.

McKinley attended Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, but financial difficulties forced him to leave before completing his degree. Despite this setback, he studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1867. McKinley then started a successful law practice in Canton, Ohio.

His political career began when he was elected as prosecuting attorney for Stark County, Ohio, in 1869. McKinley later served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1877 to 1884. During his time in Congress, he became known for his advocacy of protective tariffs to aid American industry, earning him the nickname 'The Tariff President.'

In 1896, McKinley secured the Republican nomination for president and campaigned on a platform that supported the gold standard and protective tariffs. He faced...Read MORE...

1897 - March 4 - William McKinley (1843-1901) becomes 25th President of the United States
With the support of Mark Hanna, a shrewd Cleveland businessman interested in safeguarding tariff protection, William McKinley became governor of Ohio in 1892 and Republican presidential candidate in 1896. The business community, alarmed by the progressivism of William Jennings Bryan, the Democratic candidate, spent considerable money to assure McKinley's victory.

The chief event of McKinley's administration was the war with Spain, which resulted in the United States' acquisition of the Philippines and other islands. With imperialism an issue, McKinley defeated Bryan again in 1900. On Sept. 6, 1901, he was shot at Buffalo, N.Y., by Leon F. Czolgosz, an anarchist, and he died there eight days later.

1900 - TURKEY FOR THE PRESIDENT - A Rhode Island Bird Picked Out for Thanksgiving at the White House
PROVIDENCE, R. I. The Westerly turkey king has picked out the turkey which it is expected will grace President McKinley's table at the White House on Thanksgiving Day. The turkey is a magnificent-looking gobbler and is now strutting around showing its pride in its 35 pounds of superiority. The bird was selected after a careful inspection of every flock in the neighborhood of Westerly and North Stonington.

The fame of the town of Westerly rests upon the fact that for years and years it has furnished the turkeys for the Thanksgiving Day dinners of the Presidents of the United States. The late Senator Anthony, of Rhode Island, first established the custom of sending a Rhode Island turkey to the President for Thanksgiving consumption, and he kept up the practice until his death. Then Nathan F. Dixon, a close friend of Senator Anthony, took up the work, and after his death the dealer through whom the turkeys had been ordered continued the custom in his own name.

Some handsome and...
