President William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States. Born in 1843, he was an Ohio native and remained in Ohio except to attend secondary school. He enlisted as a Private in the Union Army when the Civil War broke out in 1861. Once the war was over, McKinley returned to Ohio with his sights set on a career in law. He attended law school at Albany Law School in New York. When he returned home and was admitted to the bar, he opened up a small but successful practice. He became involved in politics by giving speeches on behalf of his army friend, Rutherford B. Hayes, who was nominated for governor. He was elected to the office of the prosecuting attorney in 1869, a seat in Congress in 1876, and governor of Ohio in 1891. He married his wife Ida Saxton in January of 1871. They had two daughters, Katherine and Ida, but they both died at young ages. McKinley was elected President in 1897 and served two terms before he was assassinated in 1901 at the age of 58. He was most known for acquiring Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines while President.
