Inaugurations in history
While President Obama (woot!) is eating lunch, television coverage will be less interesting. Here are a couple of links to help you pass the time until the parade.
- Someone over on metafilter has compiled a list of links to video of every inauguration from Teddy Roosvelt until George Bush.
- The Library of Congress has a very interesting list of inaugural firsts from 1789 to the present.
- Bartleby’s has the texts of every inaugural address starting with George Washington.
