First inauguration of President Barack Obama
On Jan. 20, 2009, Barack Obama was sworn in as president of the United States. Obama took his place as the 44th president under a bright winter sky, painting this perilous national moment in unsparing terms and exhorting Americans to respond by taking greater responsibility for themselves, the country and the world. More than 1 million people flocked to the National Mall to take part in the event.
