A story set against the background of President McKinley's assassination at the 1901 Pan American Exposition and his death 10 days later.
It's 1901 and the Pan American Exposition is in full swing. Before it ends, a president will be assassinated, the Secret Service will be born, surgery technique will change forever, and a young woman will fall in love.
Follow Elspeth Shaughnessy as she narrates (not always in perfect English and sometimes with convoluted thoughts) how the President is shot, she's accused of being responsible, and has to fight to clear her name.
Not a story about the assassination, but the people who were assigned to the small Exposition Hospital where the President was brought for care after the shooting. When the surgeon in town who was the expert on gunshot wounds wasn't available, the President was operated on by an Obstetrician. Leading to the question: Who Killed the President? The assassin or his surgeon?
The day of William McKinley's assassination was recently named by the HIstory Channel as one of the top ten days that unexpectedly changed America because it brought Teddy Roosevelt into office and that began the green movement or conservation of natural resources so important in the world today.
