I Do Solemnly Swear: Jackson’s Inaugurations
As the United States prepares to inaugurate a new president on January 20th, Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage presents “I Do Solemnly Swear: Jackson’s Inaugurations,” a look at how Jackson’s inaugurations broke previous precedents. Andrew Jackson Foundation President & CEO Howard J. Kittell will highlight what happened at the inaugurations of 1829, 1833 and 1837 when presidential power transferred to America’s 7th president and then on to the 8th president.
One of the hallmarks of the United States’ democracy is the peaceful transfer of power from one presidential administration to the next. The focal point of each transition is the spectacle of the presidential inauguration. The U.S. Constitution only provides minimum details about a presidential inauguration. During the early decades of our republic, details of the ceremonies evolved. As with most things Jackson, Andrew Jackson’s inaugurations broke precedents.
Limited seating available. Included in all tickets purchased that day, up to seating capacity.
