In the newly-updated fourth edition of “Democracy’s Big Day: The Inauguration of Our President 1789-2013” (published by iUniverse), author Jim Bendat sheds light on the little known history of presidential inaugurations in the United States.
“Many people are fascinated by presidential history,” says Bendat. “This book provides readers – whether they are history buffs or not – with stories that will both educate and entertain.”
Rather than organizing the book chronologically, Bendat divides the book into different parts of the inauguration process such as the ceremony, inaugural parade and inaugural ball. Within each chapter are historic, amusing vignettes that reveal how Inauguration Day has evolved since 1789.
“The subject of the presidency is always relevant,” he says. “Many of the book’s stories bring our presidents somewhat to life, focusing on individual experiences our leaders had on the day they took office.”
