Description:

To some, President William McKinley may disappear into the ranks of those American presidents whose accomplishments are little-known, if they are known at all. Drawing on the work of recent scholars (and their own keen interest in McKinley), the creators of this website seek to provide information about McKinley (and his assassination, obviously). In this process, they have transcribed a host of important resources, including articles, essays, editorials, news columns, sermons, and so on. These resources serve both as a lens into McKinley's life as well as American history and culture. With a homepage that features a crisp design, visitors can look over such sections as "Quotes About", "Documents", and "Resources". For those uninitiated into the world of McKinley, the "Quotes About" area is a good place to begin. Here they will find quotes about the man himself, his assassin Leon Czolgosz, his successor Theodore Roosevelt, and the assassination. The "Documents" area is a section that is well worth visiting, as it contains a wide range of materials related to McKinley's assassination, and a number of pieces of reporting from the time that are quite valuable. Finally, the site also has a series of indexes, which will help users structure their time on the site in an efficient manner.
