Boundless Releases Infographic on US Presidential Inaugurations and a Free US Constitution Textbook

Drunken Vice Presidents & Other Great Inauguration Facts Infographic

January 18, 2013 --

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 -- Boundless -- the free alternative to traditional textbooks -- has released a free textbook on the US Constitution and an infographic with important (and fun) facts about presidential inaugurations in honor of the upcoming inauguration.

"While the popular press might like to skewer Vice President Joe Biden's speeches, it's highly unlikely that he'll mortify the crowd in the same way Vice President Andrew Johnson's whiskey fueled speech did in 1865," said Boundless founder Ariel Diaz. "More importantly, we are proud to advance our mission of delivering high quality, free college textbooks created from open education resources. We hope all Americans find our latest open textbook, highlighting the US Constitution, the perfect companion to a new year of political discourse."

The US Presidential Inauguration

The 20th amendment moved the Presidential inauguration to January 20th, instead of March, to eliminate the long "lame duck" period, where the nation's leadership could suffer a constitutional power vacuum in the long wait.

Some other important (and fun) tidbits in the Presidential Inauguration Facts Infographic, which is available here, include:

  • Dwight D. Eisenhower was lasso'd by a cowboy on a horse in 1953.
  • The campaign of 1800 left deep wounds for presidential victor John Adams in his race against Thomas Jefferson. Adams was in no mood to celebrate the inauguration and left town.
  • Ronald Reagan holds the record for both the coldest and warmest inaugurations. In 1981, temperatures reached 55 degrees during his speech and dipped to 7 degrees for his 1985 event.
