Presidential Inaugurations

Okay, So, I had to bring this to the blog's attention. On this day in 1982, a bouncing baby boy named Christopher Paul Young entered into this adventure we call life. Little known to me at the time, 121 years previous, Jefferson Davis of Mississippi was being sworn in as the President of the Confederate States of America. Not only was he being sworn in on my birthday, but the ceremony took place in my home state, Alabama! I have added a photo which includes the feet of three of our four blog authors standing around a star located at the capitol building in Montgomery, Alabama. This is purportedly where Davis took the oath of office, Feb. 18, 1861.

Do you have any idea why it is a Star of David?
