Secret Service: All about the money

Today I learned that the US Secret Service was originally founded and up until 2003 in charge of fighting counterfeiting of US Dollar bills and coins. They only came into charge of protecting the president and other leading organs of the US after the assassination of President William McKinley.

I came across this while listening to the German Podcast “Geschichten aus der Geschichte” and obviously reassuring the statements from there with reading the Wikipedia article.
