    Quiz question: The first U.S. President to appear on film was.... (take a guess)

    I like browsing around old archive newsreel and early film attempts.


    I was just reading up on the history (and the man) surrounding all of this.


    Not quite a 'current event' () but anyway....


    Q: Who was the first U.S. President ever to be filmed on camera?

    William McKinley.



    According to the description, this was taken in or around September 1896 at Canton, Ohio, and shows a recreation of McKinley (on the right of the screen) receiving the Republican nomination just a few weeks before. A dark figure behind on the porch on a rocking-chair (I can barely make her out) is said to be the President's wife, Ida.

    This other video (with a commentary and music added many years later) shows the inauguration.



    I knew about his eventual fate of course, but not the exact details....

    A few months after his re-election, on September 6, 1901, he was shot by anarchist Leon Czolgosz at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York.

    After initially seeming to have recovered, his wound then became infected, gangrene set in, and he died 8 days later on September 14, 1901.

    Leon Czolgosz went to the electric chair and was executed on October 29, 1901.

    Archive film of McKinley's funeral in Canton, Ohio shows new President Theodore Roosevelt among the mourners.



    History lesson for the day. It was all beyond 110 years ago.

    Theodore Roosevelt is himself remembered as being the first president to have flown in an airplane, although it was not during his time in office.


    (The first president to have flown while he was in office was Teddy's fifth cousin, Franklin Roosevelt).

    I would have guessed T. Roosevelt -- I lose.

    Was McKinley one of the good guys or one of the bad guys?

    Another few notes of historical interest....

    McKinley's wife Ida Saxton.... (looking very grand and regal)



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ida_Saxton_McKinley

    ....died in 1907, and is buried with her husband at McKinley National Memorial in Canton, Ohio....



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McKinley_National_Memorial

    ....also in Canton, her family house, the Saxton House, built in 1841, has been preserved....



    ....and with other buildings in the city, formed the First Ladies National Historic Site, established in 2000.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_L..._Historic_Site



    (you know, for this being CE&P, and predominantly American, I find it quite surprising how few threads there ever are about United States history, political and otherwise)

    The current generation are too foolish to learn about —and to learn from— the fools of the past.

    Speak for your own self. I studied an inordinate amount of U.S. History-- and I would also feel very safe in saying that the small number of CE&P participants have read far more about U.S. History than the general population.

    Justice certainly moved faster in those days. I wonder if innocent people tended to get caught up in it as happens too often nowadays, or didn't that problem exist yet? I'm not implying anything about Czolgosz at all, but just wondering if things were generally more reliable with convictions back in those days.

    on September 6, 1901, he was shot by anarchist Leon Czolgosz at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York.

    After initially seeming to have recovered, his wound then became infected, gangrene set in, and he died 8 days later on September 14, 1901.

    Leon Czolgosz went to the electric chair and was executed on October 29, 1901


    I'm very surprised that I did INDEED guess William McKinley first. I certainly wasn't sure.

    VOTING: Just remember: "Be careful of what you DON'T wish for. You might just get it." GET OUT AND VOTE for what you DO wish for.
