Hi Ken

There's an NEH special event about the history of presidential inaugurations that will be live streamed tomorrow from the Smithsonian

Special one-hour presentation of BackStory. Exploring scenes from presidential inaugurations past, historians-cum-radio-personalities Brian Balogh, Ed Ayers, and Peter Onuf will examine what these moments reveal about the social and political forces at work around them, beginning with America’s first inauguration.
