For more than 200 years America’s citizens have witnessed the Inauguration ceremonies of the President and Vice President of the United States. This year was a very different ceremony compared to years past. Not only was the U.S. Capitol not open to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it was also closed due to the invasion that happened just a week before the Inauguration. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn into office.
