McKinley assassination (personal response); Leon Czolgosz.
Named persons
Leon Czolgosz; William McKinley.



     To our shame as a nation, Czolgosz, who shot President McKinley, was a native American. His father was born in Europe, but the assassin is as much of an American as half of the population in some of our cities. He is not of “the scum of European emigration.” We have bred and reared this creature, and some of us have nursed it into the blind anarchism that strikes down a great and good man simply because he is a “ruler,” although chosen so to rule by the majority of his fellow citizens.
