When George Washington became the new United States of Americas first president, he set several precedents, including one on April 30, 1789. That day, Washington was inaugurated as president, and for the occasion he gave the nations first presidential inaugural address, used to inform the people of his intentions as a leader. Inaugural addresses have since become iconic moments for each new leader, sometimes providing the presidents most memorable moment. Franklin Delano Roosevelt told Americans they had nothing to fear but fear itself, John F. Kennedy asked Americans what they could do for their country, and Abraham Lincoln asked Northerners to show malice toward none and charity for all. Regardless of how each presidency turned out, inaugural addresses have always given voice to the optimism and hope that each new presidential term represents. Thomas Jefferson is one of the most famous Founding Fathers, the 3rd President of the United States and the first of his party to become president. He oversaw the Louisiana Purchase and set the course for his proteges, Madison and Monroe, to follow. This edition of President Thomas Jeffersons Inaugural Addresses is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Jefferson.
