INAUGURATION


Definition: Inauguration - Ceremony in which the president officially takes the oath of office.

Explanation: Inauguration connects to Jefferson because he was the first President to be inaugurated in Washington D.C. He also walked to his inauguration instead of riding in a fancy carriage to show the simple government customs that he believed in. Inaugurations show the coming of a new era, and Jefferson's inauguration represented the new era that about to engulf the country. "Jefferson used his inaugural address to bring a divided country together." (pg. 311) During Jefferson's era, the country couldn't agree on practically anything, and he used his inauguration to alert the country that changes need to be made in order for the nation to become united once again.

This picture relates to Jefferson because he chose to walk to his inauguration instead of riding in a fancy carriage to show the simple government customs that he believed so strongly in. Chuck Taylor All-Stars are a simple shoe design but in that same sense are very iconic. Jefferson had a very simple inauguration, but it was iconic because it showed how serious he took simplicity in government.

I think that a song that would represent Inauguration and Jefferson's connection to it would be "Footloose." It would represent this because Jefferson walked to his Inauguration to show the simple government customs that he believed in. Click here for a song that Jefferson would like because it tells people to take of their fancy shoes and start dancing. He didn't like fancy government and decided to walk instead to show simplicity in government. The song asks people to ditch the fancy and complicated shoes and go simple, dance in your socks!
