On September 14th, 1901, President William McKinley succumbed to a gunshot wound from pistols allegedly fired by anarchists. While Washington DC went into a frenzy and the media scapegoating began, a nation went into gracious mourning for its slain leader. And what could be more gracious that these funeral chairs from that same era? The lush tapestry upholstery perfectly compliments a day of national mourning or a day at the beach with your SPF 100. Even better, they fold up for easy transport from your backyard BBQ to Beach-goth to a solemn picnic in the cemetery. The gent I bought them from could recall his grandmother telling of closing the family funeral parlor in the depression and burning hundreds of these chairs. She saved two, just for you.
