Let’s go visit William McKinley, another Buckeye president and lover of the carnation, born in Niles, Ohio! Probably one of the steadiest of the steady presidents, a kind-hearted man behind a stern exterior, and a bridge between the era of the manager-presidents of the Gilded Age and the dynamic, center of American politics of the 20th century.
The commemoration of his birthsite is very elaborate, and another great story with many twists and turns!
Heading to the Capitol for the first of many visits, this time for the home of William Howard Taft in the Kalorama neighborhood!
