Barack and Michelle Obama on the inauguration parade



Today marks President Barack Obama's first 100 days in office. To celebrate the occasion, the American History Museum presents its new exhibition, "I Do Solemnly Swear: Photographs of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration." This collection of more than 30 images—snapped by both professional and amateur photographers—documents the week leading up to Obama's historic inauguration, which thanks to the proliferation of digital cameras, is most likely the most-photographed inauguration ever. You can get a sneak peek at the exhibition by way of our photo gallery—but, if you're able, be sure to check out the entire show, which goes on display beginning this morning at the American History Museum through July 12.
