For many years, President McKinley’s achievements were overlooked. Eliot Vestner dives into these forgotten achievements in his book, Ragtime in the White House. The book takes an in-depth look at McKinley, the Spanish American War, and his role in getting America out of the Panic of 1893. Vestner also explores the role that McKinley played in helping to provide federal protection for African Americans and the fight to protect African American communities from racial violence. This is an excellent choice for anyone looking to better understand what happened during McKinley’s presidency and his role in American history!
