Inauguration activities at Mount Vernon

Please note: This event has already occurred.
In honor of the inauguration of the 44th president, take the oath of office and see a replica of the first presidential inauguration with a life-size figure of Washington taking the oath of office. Place your hand on a reproduction of the Bible upon which Washington took the oath of office, and see George Washington's annotated copy of the Acts of Congress, a rare volume that broke auction world records for an American historical document when it was offered for sale last summer. The well-preserved book includes Washington's copy of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and other legislation passed by the first session of Congress, complete with his personal annotations. The Acts of Congress will remain on display through February 18, 2013.
