This print shows George Washington arriving at Congress Hall in Philadelphia on March 4, 1793, for his second inauguration. This oath of office was taken in the Senate Chamber of Congress Hall in Philadelphia. His speech--given before a large assembly of congressmen, cabinet officers, federal and district court judges, and other dignitaries--was the shortest inaugural address ever given. The artist, J. L. G. (Jean Leon Gerome) Ferris (1863-1930), trained at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He is most famous for his series of 78 scenes from American history called The Pageant of a Nation.
