1901 - President McKinley Inauguration Footage

The President McKinley Inauguration Footage is fairly boring. There's a two minute video that's basically a parade of horses and swords and Americans in silly-looking old-fashioned military costumes. Then there's a fifty second video that's like a combination of two of your friends with poor seats each filming the least interesting part of a concert. Still, it was the first film in the project, I think, that includes two scenes from different angles.

I loved seeing the real-life president - and real-life regular people, going about their business - on film this early, but I probably should have watched the first or third films in the McKinley trilogy instead.
