McKinley's dream of a global empire

March 26, 2018 The Boston Globe

Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer in The Boston Globe, "Divine visitations are the most powerful of all dreams...Among those believers was one of the most devout American presidents, William McKinley. By McKinley’s own account, God appeared to him at the White House on an October night in 1898. When he awoke, he did what God had told him to do. That decisively shaped the future course of American and world history."
