The U.S. Presidential Inauguration

Publius

The American presidential inauguration occurs every four years and invites a spectacular amount of fanfare. The new president gets his own day of feasting, procession, statesmanship, and celebration. The United States marks its transition of government with a day of events that have developed over time to become our modern-day inauguration. The theme of the 2013 Inauguration of President Barack Obama was “Faith in America's Future”, which recalled the installation of the Statue of Freedom on the Capitol Dome 150 years ago in 1863.

On this website you will find information on the 2013 inauguration of President Barack Obama. Information provided here covers event attendance, participation, galas, and other events surrounding this historic day.
