#101360 - Electric Chair
Responding to: Russell Bull's previous message
Russell Bull said:
Westinghouse, on the other hand is relatively unknown - except maybe for the electric chair!

Wasn't the electric chair part of the "War of the Currents?"

Didn't it deliberately use DC to try to give the impression that "DC is Dangerous?"

Or is that story just apocryphal?
