AN INAUGURATION ON THIS DAY IN 1961

See the source image

 

On January 20, 1961, on the newly renovated east front of the
United States Capitol,
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was inaugurated
as the 35th president of the United States.

The ceremony began with a religious invocation and prayers, and then 
African American opera singer Marian  Anderson sang “The Star-
Spangled Banner,” and Robert Frost recited his poem “The Gift
Outright.” Kennedy was administered
the oath of office by 

Chief Justice Earl Warren.

During his famous inauguration address, Kennedy, the youngest candidate
ever elected to the presidency and the country’s first Catholic president, 
declared  that “the torch has been passed to a new generation of 
Americans” and appealed to Americans to “ask not what your
country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

On this day in 1968, the United States presidential election was the 46th quadrennial U.S. presidential election. The Republican nominee, former
Vice President Richard Nixon, defeated the Democratic nominee,
incumbent Vice President Hubert Humphrey.

Analysts have argued the election of 1968 was a major realigning election
as it permanently disrupted the New Deal Coalition that had dominated
presidential politics for 36 years.

The inauguration of George Washington, the first President of the
United
States
in 1789.


Chancellor of New York Robert Livingston administered the presidential
oath of office in view of throngs of people gathered on the streets. The
Bible used in the ceremony was from St. John’s Lodge No. 1 and  was
opened at random to Genesis 49:13.  Afterwards, Livingston shouted
"Long live George Washington, President of the United States!" to the
crowd, which was replied to with cheers and a 13-gun salute. The first
inaugural address was subsequently delivered by Washington in the
Senate chamber, running 1419 words in length.  At this time there were
no inaugural balls on the day of the ceremony, though a week later, on
May 7, a ball was held in New York City to honor the first President.


Federal Hall, New York City (above), was the site of George
Washington’s first inauguration, April 30, 1789.
