Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

John F. Kennedy was the last president to attend his inauguration ceremony in a stovepipe hat (I didn't believe this one myself until I looked up some images).

***

John Quincy Adams was the first president to wear long trousers to his inauguration ceremony (breaking a tradition of colonial breeches).

***

During his Inaugural Parade, President Eisenhower was lassoed by a cowboy.

***

The Constitution does not require the president to swear on a bible, but it's been tradition from the beginning, thanks to George Washington.

***

Washington also holds the record for shortest speech at just 135 words. In 1841, William Henry Harrison gave the longest speech. It lasted almost two hours in freezing temperatures. As a result, Harrison would last about another month before dying of pneumonia.

***

In 1921, Warren Harding became the first president to use an automobile to get to and from the ceremony.
