His major accomplishments were: he was the 25th president and made the McKinley tariffs. William had a nice lifestyle. He 1st opened a law office in Canton, Ohio. Then, after that he became the 25th president. He signed treaties and tariffs as president, but it must have been harder than anyone thought. William McKinley was shot in the chest and survived a few days in the hospital. On September 14th, 1901, William McKinley passed away. His body still remains at the McKinley National Memorial.

William McKinley was a great president. Trustworthy, committed, confident is what I think about him. If he wasn’t president, where would have we been now!?
