William McKinley put himself in position to be the first Republican president to make two meaningful tours of the South. The 1901 trip was grand in scope, elaborate in planning, and important to the shape of future Republican Party overtures toward the South. Indeed, the spring journey witnessed a turning point in the history of the party's campaigns through the region. Incorporating a few themes from his Civil War past, McKinley looked more often to the future. The speeches that he gave during the tour, in addition to the behind-the-scenes machinations that took place, represented a concerted attempt to establish a new Republican strategy in the South. McKinley linked a new patronage policy in the South with gestures that suggested he was reconsidering his lifelong commitment to high protective tariffs.
