William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination in September 1901, 6 months into his 2nd term. McKinley led the nation to victory in the Spanish–American War, raised protective tariffs to promote American industry, and maintained the nation on the gold standard in a rejection of inflationary proposals. Yellow journalism at the time urged McKinley to start a war with Spain, leading to an American global empire.
William McKinley is best known for being president when the United States acquired Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines. After his 2nd inauguration in March 1901, McKinley embarked on a tour of western states, where he was greeted by cheering crowds. The tour ended in Buffalo, NY, where he gave a speech on September 5 in front of 50,000 people at the Pan-American Exposition.
The following day, McKinley was standing in a receiving line at the exposition when a unemployed Detroit mill worker named Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the chest at point-blank range. Rushed to a Buffalo hospital, McKinley initially received a hopeful prognosis, but gangrene set in around his wounds and he died 8 days later.
