Czolgosz (Father and Son)



Leon Frank Czolgosz (pronounced choll-gosh), (January 1873 – October 29, 1901) was the assassin of U.S. President William McKinley. One of seven children of Polish immigrants from Russia, Czolgosz was born in Alpena, Michigan in 1873. He was executed by electrocution, by three jolts at 1700 volts each, on October 29, 1901, in Auburn Prison in Auburn, New York.
