Overview

United States Presidents' Inaugural Speeches
(From George Washington To Donald Trump, 1789-2017)
For more than 200 years, Americans have looked forward to the moment when the new President of the United States addresses the nation in an inaugural speech. It marks the start of a four-year term and renews hope for the future.

This edition offers a complete set of those memorable and inspiring moments, from President George Washington's 1789 address to President Donald J. Trump's 2017 speech. Some do not consider John Tyler's address upon assuming the Office of President on April 9, 1841 to be an official inaugural speech. None-the-less, it is included in this volume for completeness.

About the Author

This book offers a complete set of inaugural speeches starting with President George Washington up to, and including, U.S. President Donald Trump.

George Washington (1732-1799) was an American politician, soldier, and the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797. He was also one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Washington served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and later presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the Constitution. He was known as the "father of the country". Washington oversaw the creation of a strong national government that maintained neutrality in the French Revolutionary Wars and he won acceptance among Americans of all types.

He was born into the gentry of Colonial Virginia. His family were tobacco plantations farmers. He was a senior officer in the colonial militia during the first stages of the French and Indian War. In 1775, the Second Continental Congress commissioned him as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in the American Revolution.

Upon his death, Washington was remembered as "first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen" by Representative Henry Lee III of Virginia.
