A Century of Progress during the Hoosac Tunnel Era, 1810-1910 [excerpt]

After his assassination, the citizens of Adams on October 10, 1903, erected the first heroic statue of the martyred president. Four bronze tablets represent the principal historic acts of McKinley’s life: As Commissary Sergeant during the Battle of Antietam in 1862; Addressing the House of Representatives on the measures of the McKinley Tariff Bill; Delivering his Inaugural Address, March 4, 1897, at Washington; and a quotation from his Buffalo Address, delivered September 6 [sic], 1901, before his assassination: “Let us remember that our interests lie in Concord, not Conflict, and that our real eminence is in the victories of Peace, not those of War.”
