Interesting inauguration tidbit!

January 20th, 2009 at 06:46 am

Today is inauguration day. The president who gave the longest inauguration speech was William Henry Harrison. He refused to wear a hat or a coat and he gave a two hour speech.
He caught pneumonia and died one month later.
Better wear your hats and coats today if you are outside!!

    Wow! I didn't know that piece of history. I'm glad I can watch it from the warmth of my home.

    one of my goals is to read the biographies of each american president. I guess this one, when i get to it, will be very short!
