Faculty: Brian Balogh , Peter S. Onuf

It was an exciting Inauguration for BackStory's American History Guys, beginning with a live show at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History broadcast live on C-Span3 (link below to watch).  Then the History Guys appeared three times on CNN to discuss the history of Inaugurations.  Below are links to the three broacasts, each about five minutes long. If you have never seen Brian, Ed and Peter in action take a minute to watch.
