President McKinley Inauguration, 1901

Summary The first sequence (ca. 49 ft.), views of President William McKinley speaking, may be unrelated footage. Views of crowds on Pennsylvania Ave., NW, in front of the old Willard Hotel during the March 4, 1901 inaugural festivities. A mounted military unit rides through what is probably the court of honor, the area on Pennsylvania Ave., NW, from Fifteenth to Seventeenth Sts.; the President and his party reviewed the inaugural parade from a stand in this area. McKinley doffs his hat to the crowd as his carriage passes the Willard Hotel. Sen. Marcus A. Hanna of Ohio (1897-1904) sits beside McKinley in the carriage. Several members of the President's special escort, Troop A of the Ohio National Guard, are visible along with aides and guards. The man riding alone in the second carriage may be TR. The last sequence, of McKinley in a carriage in the court of honor, is repeated. Created/Published United States : [s.n.], 1901. Notes Appearing: President William McKinley, Sen. Marcus A.
