1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a tanner of leather, from Middle English barkere ‘tanner’, tree bark having been used as the tanning agent.

English: occupational name for a shepherd, from Middle English berker, bercher (Old French berchier, bercher, berkier, berker, Late Latin berbicarius, from berbex ‘ram’, genitive berbicis). With the change of -ar- to -er- in Middle English, this became indistinguishable from the preceding name (see 1 above).

Americanized form of German Berger or Barger .
