This article from the Greenfield, Massachusetts, "Gazette and Courier" reports favorably on the Republican victory in the 1896 election. Franklin County voted nearly six to one for McKinley over Bryan and voted in the Republican candidates for governor and congress as well. The writer of the article is pleased that the county voted overwelmingly Republican. William McKinley won the 1896 election by a very large margin over William Jennings Bryant.
