Nothing special
17 June 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Basically this short video shows a parade... lots of horses... nothing special. We see President McKinley for a second or two tops... if we see him at all (it's hard to tell since the quality of the video). Not even really worth watching from a historical standpoint.
