Inauguration of Warren G. Harding
The inauguration of Warren G. Harding as the 29th president of the United States happened on March 4, 1921. It was the start of the only term of Warren Harding as president and the only term of Calvin Coolidge as vice president.
This was the first inauguration in which an automobile was used to transport the president-elect and the leaving president (Woodrow Wilson) to and from the Capitol. However, Wilson did not attend the ceremony himself because of a stroke he got two years before.
Harding did not finish his term as president, as he died on August 2, 1923. Calvin Coolidge then became the next president.
