Today in American History 🇺🇸

Today in American history…President William Henry Harrison’s inauguration was held on March 4, 1841 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. He still holds the record for giving the longest inauguration speech of 8,445 words. Unfortunately he was also the first President to pass away in office on April 4, 1841 which made his term the shortest in American history.

Also today, President George Washington’s second inauguration was held on March 4, 1793 at Congress Hall in Philadelphia. His inauguration speech remains the shortest on record.
