really liked it

Anyone who thinks this sounds boring is wrong! Although most people are probably more familiar with his successor, Teddy Roosevelt, William McKinley’s five years in office, before he was assassinated by anarchist Leon Czolgosz, were remarkable. They involved the Spanish American War, the annexation of the Phillippines, the Boxer Rebellion, and much more. What I found most interesting were the examples of and the author's insights into President McKinley's fine personal personal character, and his approach to the responsibilities of the nation's chief executive officer.
