George Washington's Inauguration (April 30, 1789)

Let us look back at the Presidential inaugurations of the past decades where the inauguration took place in April and March, and not in January! We found the following in Daily Milwaukee News,, dated 12 March 1869, Friday, page 2:

Found on

The inauguration of Washington took place at New York, April 30, 1789. He arrived there from Mt. Vernon on the 23rd; from the 23rd to 30th, remained at his house on the corner of Pearl and Cherry streets, and received addresses from public bodies. At 9 a.m., on inauguration day, prayers were offered up for the preservation of the president in all the churches. At noon Washington was escorted to the Federal State house on Wall St., where the U.S. sub-treasury now stands, when he was received in form by congress. Accompanied by the members, he proceeded to the balcony in front of the building facing Broad St., and took the oath of office, as administered to him by chancellor Livingston. At the close of the ceremony the chancellor exclaimed, "Long live Gen. Washington," which was taken up and repeated by the immense concourse of people who witnessed the proceedings. The president returned to the senate chamber, and there delivered an address, at the close of which all went to ST. Paul's church and listened to a sermon by Rev. Samuel Prevost. The day's festivities were concluded with balls and fireworks. Washington wore a suit of black broadcloth of home manufacture. His second inauguration was at Philadelphia, March 4th, 1793. M. C.'s, heads of departments, justices of supreme court and foreign ministers assembled in the senate chamber at noon, where the oath of office was administered by judge Cushing of the supreme court. The event was announced to the people by salvos of artillery. Washington then delivered his inaugural address, and was escorted to his house by a large military procession. The "republican court" was then in its glory.
