Taking President McKinley's body from train at Canton, Ohio [electronic resource] / Thomas A. Edison, Inc
- William McKinley
- This film was photographed from two camera positions and shows the area where the guard of honor (pallbearers) is removing the casket containing the remains of President McKinley from the railroad car. The second camera position shows the pallbearers as they carry the casket to the hearse and place it inside.
From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: BODY LEAVING THE TRAIN AT CANTON, OHIO. Here, as in the other pictures, we secured a most advantageous location, and we present a life-size view of the casket containing the body of President McKinley as it is slowly and carefully taken from the window of the car which bore it from the Capitol to Canton. The casket is placed upon the shoulders of ten stalwart sailors and soldiers and borne to the waiting hearse, followed by President Roosevelt and Cabinet.
