Jennie and Dianne virtually visit the gravesites of the first 10 presidents of the United States of America. They also share a bit of each of their inaugural addresses based on what was happening at the time each of these men took the oath of office. By examining each of these addresses, we learn a little about each of these men and how they helped to shape America from it's infancy as a brand new country. For our American listeners, we hope this episode inspires you as a citizen, and for our listeners in other countries, we hope this gives you some idea of what it means to us to be American.
