Pres. McKinley assassinated!

US Pres. William McKinley was assassinated in 1901, 113 years ago, a year after his reelection. VP Theodore Roosevelt then became president.

Yesterday at the Lafayette Square House and Garden tour, I purchased this original McKinley mourning button, with original black ribbon, which was worn after his assassination.
