Leon Czolgosz Execution This is a re-creation of the execution of Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz was a self-styled anarchist who shot president William McKinley at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York on September 6, 1901. McKinley, struck twice at point-blank range, died of his wounds eight days later. There was swift justice in those days: Czolgosz's trial took place on September 23. It lasted a little more than eight hours. Czolgosz was convicted of murder and sentenced to die in the electric chair in Auburn, New York on October 29. Thomas Edison's company filmed this re-creation of the execution based on the testimony of witnesses.
