Additional Details:
On Sept. 5, 1901, President McKinley visited the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, that day having been set apart in his honor and called "President's Day." On the afternoon of the following day, while holding a special reception in the Temple of Music, he was shot twice by a cowardly assassin. The wounded president was first taken to the Emergency Hospital in the exposition ground for immediate treatment and then removed to the residence of John N. Milburn, an intimate friend and president of the exposition, where he passed away on Sept. 14th, 1901
