Connect the man(1) to the incident(2)


Ambrose Bierce(pic1.) wrote the poem below following the assassination of Governor William Goebel of Kentucky in order to express a mood of dismay and fear but William Randolph Hearst’s opponents turned it into a cause-celebre following the assassination of President William McKinley(pic 2.)

“The bullet that pierced Goebel’s breast
Can not be found in all the West;
Good reason, it is speeding here
To stretch McKinley on his bier.”

Went uncracked although Chithanand identified both the pics, and Viswanathan had something to say about a poem by Bierce…
