Now this is a great one from the vaults of the Library of Congress. I found this on YouTube (of course). There's no sound, but it's very interesting to watch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMpM4SOiIP4 On Mar. 4, 1905, Teddy Roosevelt was inaugurated in Washington, D.C. with much celebration and fanfare. He rides in an open landau on 15 St. NW, escorted by mounted Rough Riders; Secret Service men and detectives walk on either side of the carriage; he tips his hat to the crowd.
