On this day: the end of the election campaign

On the 2nd of November, 1896, Puck magazine ran a cover picturing Mark Hanna and William McKinley preparing to carve up the presidency at Thanksgiving.

The US election was held the following day. McKinley won, with the help of his adviser, Hanna. McKinley was assassinated in 1901, while Hanna only outlived him by two and a half years.
