President's Day 2016

From our collection of old postcards to honor President's Day ...

President McKinley's home and where he died in 1901.
** 25th President of the United States **


From Wikipedia: William McKinley (January 29, 1843 – September 14, 1901) was the 25th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1897, until his assassination in September 1901, six months into his second 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.
