Lawyer, Prosecutor, Friend: Wm McKinley’s Stop in Stark 11/30/19

Join us Saturday, November 30th as we welcome Mark Holland of the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum for his lecture “Lawyer, Prosecutor, Friend: William McKinley’s Stop in Stark County that Lasted Forever….” Mark illustrates with sight and sound a part of William McKinley’s life in Canton before he places himself on the national scene as a Congressman, Governor of Ohio, and President of the United States. You will be transported back to Canton, Ohio in the late 1860s just after the Civil War. You will experience more about how William McKinley chose Canton, Ohio as his home and place to “Hang his Shingle,” his success as a Stark County Prosecutor, and his marriage to Ida Saxton.
