The inauguration of the President of the United States takes place every 4 years on January 20 to commence a new term for the president. Since Reagan's 1981 inauguration, the ceremony has been held at the Capitol's West Front.
President Ronald Reagan served as the 40th president of the United States from 1981-1989. After becoming famous by acting in 53 Hollywood films, Reagan entered politics as a conservative in the 1960s. He was first elected to Governor of California in 1966 and then later campaigned for the 1980 presidential election. President Reagan and his running-mate, Vice President George H. W. Bush, beat President Jimmy Carter in a landslide victory. Reagan is remembered for his fiscal policies, also known as “Reaganomics,” and is often referenced as a hero-figure by today’s Republican party.
