The Chair

Comments Off on The Chair

A replica of “Old Sparky”, Georgia’s electric chair sits in what would’ve been the living quarters for the Sheriff and his family. Thomas Edison invented the electric chair as a more humane means of execution, however his prediction of it being able to kill a man in five seconds was grossly miscalculated. After witnessing his invention being used and seeing that it took up to four minutes of steady current to kill a man, Edison regretted his invention until his dying day.
