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 [as]sassin is as much of an American as half of the population in some of our cities. He is not of “the scum of Europe[a]n emigr[a]tion.” We have bred and reared this creature, and [s]ome of us have nursed it into the blind anarchism that strikes down a great [a]nd good man simply because he is [a] “ruler,” [a]lthough chosen so to rule by the m[a]jority of [his] fellow citizen[s].
