Presidents’ Day Trivia

In honor of Presidents’ Day, I thought it would be fun to post a presidential trivia question.

Who was the first president to campaign by telephone?

Clues about this man….

He won a seat in congress at the age of 34.
His wife suffered from epilepsy while he was president.
He was assassinated while in office and died eight days after being shot.

  1. William McKinley.
    I enjoyed reading about various parts of his life. Not thrilled when he threw a napkin over his wife’s face when she was having a seizure in public, but it made sense. Appreciated that he ignored protocol at official dinners by seating his wife at his right so he could help her if necessary. Tragic that they lost their 4-month-old and 4-year-old daughters….

    • LOL, Laney, no worries, I know what you mean about that tidbit where McKinley threw the napkin over his wife’s face. I learn something interesting every time I research history πŸ™‚ Thanks for leaving a comment on the blog!
