Also see the Official Inauguration website and the background of this year's theme: A New Birth of Freedom’ which commemorates the 200th anniversary of Lincoln’s birth and expresses Lincoln’s hope that the sacrifice of those who died to preserve the nation shall lead to “a new birth of freedom” for it.
