Buffalo, NY and Our Connection to President McKinley

There hasn’t been an attempt on a president’s life since 1981, when President Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Jr. While President Reagan survived, other presidents succumbed to their wounds. In the history of the United States there have been a total of ten presidents as the target of an assassination attempt. Of those ten attempts, four presidents were killed while in office.

There are two out of the four presidents assassinated that people would know right off the bat in a trivia game. Do you know? But the big question is do you know the other two. One of those two has a direct connection to Buffalo, NY. James Garfield is one and William McKinley is the other. President McKinley was assassinated right here in Buffalo NY.
