McKinley-Roosevelt, 1900

Though 1900 was a repeat of the previous election -- Republican William McKinley versus Democrat William Jennings Bryan -- it included a surprise vice presidential nomination of then New York Gov. Teddy Roosevelt. McKinley's assassination six months later gave Roosevelt the presidency. (lithograph, c. 1900, p. 77)
