Historical inaugurations.

On this inauguration day you can take a historical look at the inauguration and various past swearing-in ceremonies from the Senate, as well as view the Obama inauguration and take a guided tour of Blair House, dubbed "the president's guest house," on C-Span.

About the photo: Harper's Weekly illustration of Theodore Roosevelt's inauguration address, 1905. TR is reported to have worn a ring to the inaugural that contained some hair from Abraham Lincoln, which was loaned to him by former Lincoln secretary John Hay.
