SLAVE WHIPPING AS A BUSINESS. People who lived in Richmond would send their slaves here for punishment. When any one wanted a slave whipped he would send a note to that effect with the servant to the trader. Any petty offense on the part of a slave was sufficient to subject the offender to this brutal treatment. For this service the owner was charged a certain sum for each slave, and the earnings of the traders from this source formed a very large part of the profits of his business. by pearlie

William McKinley and his wife, Ida. When he took office in 1897, he defied the protocol of the day, insisting his wife be seated beside him at state dinners, so he could help if a seizure struck her, or cover her face with a handkerchief to ward off an impending attack. When he was fatally shot in 1901, his last thoughts were of her, whispering "My wife - be careful - how you tell her." by rosanna
