Matthew Brady (1822-1896) was Abraham Lincoln's favorite photographer. A very talented painter he became interested in photography when Samuel Morse told him about daguerrotype images which first appeared in Paris in 1839. The daguerreotype image is formed on a highly polished silver surface, normally Sheffield plate. He opened his own photography studio in New York in 1844. He has been called "the father of photojournalism" because of the photos he took during the Civil War. The technology to put photos in newspapers did not exist in his lifetime. Halftone photographs on printing presses first appeared in 1897 and it wasn't until the early 20th century that photos in newspapers on a mass scale became possible. Brady photographed 18 of the 19 American Presidents from John Quincy Adams to William Mckinley. The exception was the 9th President, William Henry Harrison, who died in office three years before Brady started his Photographic Collection. Here are some photos starting with his earliest known daguer ...
WHO KILLED James A. Garfield? Most of the presidents from Ulysses S. Grant to William Mckinley were Civil War veterans and Republicans. The only exception being Grover Cleveland who didn't fight in the war and he was a Democrat. I won't hold that against him because in my mind he was what we would call a good conservative today and was also one of our most honest presidents in American history. He is the only president to serve two terms but not consecutively. James Garfield was born in Ohio on November 19, 1831 and died on September 19, 1881 after being shot by an assassin. He was raised by a widowed mother and came from humble origins. During the Civil War he fought bravely as an officer in the Union Army of the Cumberland and was a man of integrity. Once he was ordered to use his men to capture a runaway slave but he disobeyed orders, telling his commander that he wasn't in the slave hunting business. In the Fall of 1862 he learned that he had been elected to Congress from his district in Ohio but he . ...
Early life[edit] Born in Chicopee Falls, then part of Springfield, Massachusetts, MacArthur was the father of General Douglas MacArthur, as well as Arthur MacArthur III, a captain in the Navy who was awarded the Navy Cross in World War I. His own father, Arthur MacArthur, Sr., was the fourth governor of Wisconsin (albeit for only four days) and a judge in Milwaukee.[1] Civil War[edit] At the outbreak of the Civil War, MacArthur was living in Wisconsin. On August 4, 1862, at the age of 17, he was commissioned as a first lieutenant and appointed as adjutant of the 24th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, seeing action at Chickamauga, Stones River, Chattanooga, the Atlanta Campaign and Franklin. At the Battle of Missionary Ridge on November 25, 1863 during the Chattanooga Campaign, the 18-year-old MacArthur inspired his regiment by seizing and planting the regimental flag on the crest of Missionary Ridge 35°1′7.15″N 85°15′51.02″W at a particularly critical moment, shouting "On Wisconsin." For th ...
On February 14, 1879, Republican Senator Blanche Kelso Bruce became the first black man to preside over the U. S. Senate . Senator Bruce, who was born a slave in Virginia, was also the first black man to serve a full term in the U.S. Senate. After the Civil War, Bruce worked as a steamboat porter along the Mississippi River. During that time, he met Republican leaders that encouraged him to get into politics. He was also appointed Register of the U.S. Treasury by Republican President William McKinley. Congressman John Roy Lynch, of Mississippi, wrote about Bruce in his autobiography and described him as "...one of the strongest and most influential colored men that our country has ever produced. He was courteous, respectful, dignified, yet bold, outspoken, and aggressive in the advocacy and defense of what he believed to be right. He enjoyed and merited the unlimited confidence of his own people and the respect and favorable opinion of all who had the good fortune to know him without regard to race or pol ...
The two US Presidents to serve in the Kanawha Division during the Civil War should be familiar to all St Albans residents (St Albanites? St Albanians?): Rutherford B Hayes and William Mckinley.
Here's a Fact I Did Not Know: I thought CNN might have been misinformed when I read that the Secret Service was investigating the electronic financial theft at Target. It turns out that the Secret Service was *originally* formed after the Civil War to police the financial arena and only added the protection of the President to their duties in 1901 after William Mckinley got shot. Things we learn :-)
Marianne's Digest: Pretty freaky. Lincoln authorized the creation of the Secret Service on April 14, 1865 — the same day he was assassinated?! Even if the Secret Service had been in place on the day of Lincoln’s assassination, it would not have made a difference. Lincoln created the agency on the advice of Treasury Secretary Hugh McCulloch to combat rampant counterfeiting. By the end of the Civil War as much as 50 percent of U.S. paper currency was counterfeit. It would take another 36 years and the assassination of two more Presidents — James A. Garfield and William Mckinley — before the Congress added protection of the President to the list of duties performed by the Secret Service.
In 1893, Dems began repealing many of the civil rights laws established by the Repubs. In 1900, Dems sought the repeal of the 14th amendment (granting citizenship; whole representation -not 3/5; no elected official seat for those who do not support the U.S.-hmm, that’s a funny one; or pay for the debt from a rebellion-like the Civil War) and 15th amendment (equal voting rights). 1901, even though it upset many Dems, Repub Teddy Roosevelt invites Booker T. Washington (black historian) to dine with him at the White House-first time for that as well. Booker T. Washington was brushed off by Dem. President Woodrow Wilson but served as an advisor for Republican Presidents William Taft, William Mckinley and Teddy Roosevelt. African Americans continued their Republican support well into the 20th century. 1932, Republican Herbert Hoover lost re-election to Democrat Franklin Roosevelt, who had only slightly reached out to black voters encouraging them to vote for Dems; however during this election a flyer was pa ...
I was about to post that I was mystified as to why Hayes Jr High in St Albans, WV was named for such a forgettable president as Rutherford B. Hayes. Then I found out he was general of the Kanawha Division of the Union Army in the Civil War. Plus, he had a rocking' beard. Thanks Wikipedia!
In honor of today's holiday, on some news program recently, the anchors debated over which President they'd like to have lunch with -- living or dead. One wanted to dine with JFK; another wanted to lunch with President Clinton. But the third anchor actually wanted to break bread with our 25th commander-in-chief, William Mckinley, which I thought was an interesting answer. President McKinley was, after all, the guy who A.) served in the Civil War, B.) was assassinated by anarchists, and C.) was actually considered by most to be just an average President.

It's interesting to read that back in 1898, Democrats pushed the Republican President William McKinley into a war he hoped to avoid. This was the first official war since the Civil War that we were involved in as a nation. The Spanish-American war demonstrated weakness in our military, and despite the fact that we won that war and established Cuban independence from Spain, this was the beginning of a slow, but apparent march of American Federal control over national and international affairs. Spain gave the United States control over Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Four years later, the Militia Act of 1903 formed militias into 3 separate components: the Regular Army, the Army Reserve, and the National Guard. The National Guard was meant to be state militias only, NEVER to be deployed beyond American soil. Those soldiers were always meant to defend their states. Despite that, federal power was granted over those state militias, which then fell under control of the Regular Army, and it seems that the idea ...
On tis day in history. Jan 29, 1843 William Mckinley, 25th President of the United States, is born On this day in 1843, future President William McKinley is born in Niles, Ohio. McKinley fought bravely as a Union infantryman in the Civil War and was awarded a battlefield commission by Union officer and fellow future President Rutherford B. Hayes. After the war, McKinley passed the bar and practiced law in Ohio. He served as a member of Congress from 1877 to 1890. His congressional career ended with his conception of the unpopular McKinley tariff, which set import tax rates at 50 percent, placing an undue burden on working-class Americans. Despite this setback, McKinley won back public support, becoming governor of Ohio in 1891 and running for the presidency in 1896. The next year, McKinley became America's 25th president. He was joined in office by Vice President Theodore Roosevelt. Early in his first term, McKinley faced down the declining yet truculent Spanish empire in a controversial war that gained . ...
President Chester Arthur did not fight in the Civil War. Rutherford B. Hayes attained the rank of Lt. Colonel. Benjamin Harrison attained the rank of Brigadier General. Sgt William Mckinley was wounded at the Battle of South Mountain.
The History Minute with JA West sponsored by The Knights that say Ni. William Mckinley At the 1896 Republican Convention, in time of depression, the wealthy Cleveland businessman Marcus Alonzo Hanna ensured the nomination of his friend William Mckinley as "the advance agent of prosperity." The Democrats, advocating the "free and unlimited coinage of both silver and gold"--which would have mildly inflated the currency--nominated William Jennings Bryan. While Hanna used large contributions from eastern Republicans frightened by Bryan's views on silver, McKinley met delegations on his front porch in Canton, Ohio. He won by the largest majority of popular votes since 1872. Born in Niles, Ohio, in 1843, McKinley briefly attended Allegheny College, and was teaching in a country school when the Civil War broke out. Enlisting as a private in the Union Army, he was mustered out at the end of the war as a brevet major of volunteers. He studied law, opened an office in Canton, Ohio, and married Ida Saxton, daughter ...
Grover Cleveland: Cradle robber. Not helpful to poor people. Benjamin Harrison: Helped out the Civil War veterans. Grover Cleveland: N/A William Mckinley: Mean to his wife.
As I read through Rutherford B. Hayes' bio, I never fully realized what an illustrious career he had as an Army officer during the Civil War. Interestingly enough, towards the end of the war, he had a young Lt. serving under him named William Mckinley. :)
