The Inauguration of President Barack Obama

Yesterday was a historic day. On January 20th, 2009, Barack H. Obama was sworn  in as the 44th President of the United States of America - the first  African-American ever to hold the office of U.S. Commander-in-Chief. The event  was witnessed by well over one million attendees in chilly Washington D.C., and  by many millions more through coverage on television and the Internet. Collected  here are photographs of the event, the participants, and some of the witnesses  around the world.
