President McKinley Taking the Oath (1901)

President McKinley Taking the Oath (1901)

A lot of times these early movies just set a camera up and captured something that was going on. It could have been workers leaving a factory, firemen racing to a fire, a ship leaving a dock or whatever else was popular back in the day. President McKinley ended up having a lot of his life and death captured on film and this one here delivers exactly what the title states. Obviously there's no sound but there's no doubt that this here is a rather important document since it does capture on video an important part of history. It's pretty cool getting to see such footage and it's good that companies like Edison thought about filming these things. I'm not sure if they realized people would be watching it 115 years later but it's great footage to have.
