Film Footage of President McKinley’s Inauguration

Chalk this up to our incredible Library of Congress. A silent film by Thomas Edison, shot on March 4th, 1901 at the Capitol. This one is quite blurry, but this is over a hundred years ago. It’s pretty amazing and even older than the last one I posted of Teddy Roosevelt. Thank you Library of Congress.

Here’s a portrait of the 25th President of the United States. He looks a little rigid and quite unfriendly. Do not anger this man.
