Answer: On September 6, 1901, William McKinley, the 25th President of the United States, was shot on the grounds of the Pan-American Exposition at the Temple of Music in Buffalo, New York. McKinley was shaking hands with the public when Leon Czolgosz, an anarchist, shot him twice in the abdomen. McKinley died eight days later of an infection which had spread from that wound. He was the third American president to have been assassinated, following Abraham Lincoln in 1865 and James A. Garfield in 1881. Czolgosz was executed just over seven weeks later.
