115 years ago tomorrow. Theodore Roosevelt sworn in as 26th POTUS upon death of Pres McKinley

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodore_Roosevelt#Presidency_.281901.E2.80.9309.29



On September 6, President McKinley was shot by an anarchist acting alone while in Buffalo, New York. Initial reports suggested that his condition was improving, so Roosevelt, after visiting the ailing president, embarked for the west. When McKinley's condition worsened, Roosevelt rushed back. McKinley died on September 14, and Roosevelt was sworn in at the Ansley Wilcox House.
