According to researcher James Heintze , this is how the McKinleys spent each of the Independence Days during the Major’s Presidency:

1897- McKinley spends the day with his mother in Canton, Ohio, and attends services at the First M.E. Church.

1898- McKinley is in the White House receiving hundreds of telegrams congratulating him on the progress of the war with Spain

1899- McKinley is in the White House

1900- McKinley is in Canton, Ohio, reviewing a parade.

1901- The President is in the White House.

Since President McKinley spent the holiday at home and/or with family, our staff is also doing the same. We are closed for the holiday, but will re-open again at 9AM tomorrow. Happy Fourth!
