    If Ohioans really care that much about McKinley, they should name their own mountain (or hill, rather) after him. Or maybe rename one of their cities in his honor. Selfish jerks.

    Good point. There is a McKinleyville, but it is in California.

    Ohio does have a Fort McKinley, but it is not an incorporated place name.

    It does seem suspicious that Ohio never named much of anything after McKinley. Just a few schools.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if Ohio named a hill after McKinley, only to find out later that like many hills in Ohio, it was actually a mound built by Native Americans.

    I love this and tried to post to FB but it came up with a bunch of stuff that isn’t in your posting of it. Is there a way to post it cleanly that I’m not aware of?

    Did you use the Share/Save button, or copy the image and post it by itself?

    I clicked on the FB link below the picture. It posted ok, but it came up on FB with some type of wording on the right side. I don’t recall what it was but I just deleted the post instead of leaving it there.

    They say that McKinley never visited Alaska. Alaska was not a state of the Union until 60 years after McKinley was assassinated. Why should he? And why would a mountain not in a state of the US be named after him?

    And what percentage of people in Ohio know that Alaska was not a state until 1959?
