This must have been quite the inauguration! President Eisenhower had a lot on his played as the nation recovered from a costly and bloody war. As a general during that war, Eisenhower had to govern a people bolstered and battered by a decade of war. A people full of hope and zeal for a brand new future - a productive, fruitful, and dominant Americana.
