History

McKinley remembered

One hundred eight years after his death, Ohio still remembers native-son governor and President  William McKinley. For some reason (or lack of) I have always remembered the name of his assassin, Leon Czolgosz, as I have Gavrio Prinzip, the assassin of Archduke Francis Ferdinand.  I can't remember my kids' birthdays (save the first), but I can't take these two names from my mind.  Weird.  Just sharing.

I remmember Gavrio Prinzip, because the name is is unique enough and he is blamed for setting into motion the first World War. I suppose Leon Czolgosz is a unique name but any last name with a z other than Zorro or Prinzip (like prince of lighters zippo...he started the fire) gets difficult...also I know little of McKinley and forgot that he was assassinated.

Is McKinley the least remmembered assassinated president?

You remember them because you were probably the only kid in your history classes who could pronounce those names!
