William McKinley, Jr.Birth: January 29, 1843, Niles, Ohio

William McKinley, Jr. was the 25th President of the United States, and the last veteran of the American Civil War to be elected.

By the 1880s, this Ohio native was a nationally known Republican leader; his signature issue was high tariffs on imports as a formula for prosperity, as typified by his McKinley Tariff of 1890. As the Republican candidate in the 1896 presidential election, he upheld the gold standard, and promoted pluralism among ethnic groups. 

His campaign, designed by Mark Hanna, introduced new advertising-style campaign techniques that revolutionized campaign practices and beat back the crusading of his arch-rival, William Jennings Bryan. The 1896 election is often considered a realigning election that marked the beginning of the Progressive Era.

Death: September 14, 1901 (aged 58), Buffalo, New York

President and Mrs. McKinley attended the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Leon Frank Czolgosz waited in line with a pistol in his right hand concealed by a handkerchief. At 4:07 P.M. September 6, 1901, Czolgosz fired twice at the president. 

The first bullet grazed the president's shoulder. The second, however, went through McKinley's stomach, colon, and kidney, and finally lodged in the muscles of his back. Eight days after he was shot, he died from gangrene surrounding his wounds.
