The public inaugural ceremony happening on January 21, 1957

The second inauguration of Dwight D. Eisenhower as the 34th president of the United States happened privately on January 20, 1957, and publicly on the next day, January 21, 1957. It was the start of the second and final term of Dwight D. Eisenhower as president and Richard Nixon as vice president.

Two inaugural ceremonies happened because January 20, 1957, was on a Sunday. The first ceremony was done at the White House, and the second ceremony was done at the East Front of the United States Capitol Building. The event was the 43rd presidential inauguration.

Chief Justice Earl Warren gave the oath of office to Eisenhower. William Knowland gave the vice presidential oath to Nixon.[1]
