The inauguration of a US president has been a quadrennial tradition (occurring once every four years, at least) since 1789, the year after the Constitution was ratified. Our founding document, however, says decidedly little about what the ceremony should entail, aside from the mandatory recitation of the oath of office. As a result, there's been a lot more procedural variation in presidential inductions throughout our history than most Americans might expect. This slideshow will run through some of the most interesting or even downright bizarre details from inaugurations across the years in mostly chronological order.
