William McKinley Career

Legal career and marriage

McKinley, who died in 1865, embarked on a career in law and started studying in the office of an attorney in Poland, Ohio. He continued his studies by attending Albany Law School in New York state the following year. McKinley returned home and was admitted to the bar in Warren, Ohio, in March 1867 after being at the school for less than a year.

He moved to Canton, the county seat of Stark County, and opened a small office that same year. He soon formed a friendship with George W. Belden, a veteran prosecutor and former judge. His business was good enough for him to buy a block of buildings on Main Street in Canton, which provided him with a small but steady rental income for decades to come.

McKinley made speeches in Stark County, his first foray into politics, as his Army buddy Rutherford B. Hayes was nominated for governor in 1867. In his statewide victory, Hayes kept the county split between Democrats and Republicans, but Democrats stayed it that year. McKinley ran for the office of prosecuting attorney of Stark County, an office that had traditionally been controlled by Democrats, in 1869, and was unexpectedly elected. When McKinley ran for re-election in 1871, the Democrats nominated William A. Lynch, a well-known local advocate, and McKinley was defeated by 143 votes.

As McKinley's career progressed, his social life flourished: he courted Ida Saxton, the daughter of a prominent Canton family. In the newly built First Presbyterian Church of Canton, they were married on January 25, 1871. Ida joined her husband's Methodist church shortly. Katherine was their first child and was born on Christmas Day 1871. Ida, a second daughter, was born in 1873 but died the same year. McKinley's wife suffered with profound sadness at her baby's death and her overall wellbeing, which was never robust. Katherine died of typhoid fever two years ago. Ida never recovered from her daughters' deaths, and the McKinleys had no more children. Ida McKinley developed epilepsy around the same time and was heavily dependent on her husband's presence. He remained a devoted husband who attended to his wife's medical and emotional needs for the remainder of his life.

Ida insisted that her husband's more lucrative career in law and politics continue. He attended the state Republican convention, which nominated Hayes for a third term as governor in 1875, and campaigned for his old buddy in the fall. McKinley's next year will bring a group of struggling coal miners, who were arrested for rioting following a clash with strikebreakers. Lynch, McKinley's adversary in the 1871 election, and his partner, William R. Day, were the opposing counsel, and the mine owners included Mark Hanna, a Cleveland businessman. McKinley, pro bono, was successful in obtaining all but one of the miners cleared, with one of the miners convicted. McKinley's trial brought him up to fame among laborers, a vital part of the Stark County electorate, and he was introduced to Hanna, who would be his best backer in years to come.

McKinley's strong work with labour culminated in his campaign for the Republican nomination of Ohio's 17th congressional district last year. He was thought to have attracted blue-collar voters, according to delegated to the county conventions in August 1876, and McKinley was nominated in August 1876. Hayes had been nominated for president by this time, and McKinley ran for him when running his own congressional bid. Both were fruitful. McKinley, who was largely campaigning for a protective tariff, defeated Democratic nominee Levi L. Lamborn by 3,300 votes. Hayes gained the presidency after a fiercely fought election. McKinley's win came at a personal expense: his salary as a congressman would be half of what he earned as a lawyer.


Since being assassinated by a murderer and did not campaign for a second term, Biden and the 140-year-old ghost of the last president of the United States were refused their nomination: Chester Arthur was officially admitted to the White House in Maynation

President Biden is set to seek his second term, and Democratic party leaders have mostly rallied behind him despite growing concerns about his age and mental health. However, political parties don't just ignore sitting incumbents, at least not if they were first elected as Biden was in 2020, if history is anything to go by.
