Room 2 Sculptures in FDR Memorial

Traditionally, from George Washington's time to FDR’s, inauguration day fell on March 4; this remained the case with few exceptions. However, the date was changed by the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution to January 20 to reduce the post-election "lame duck" period; it took effect in 1937.
