President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris take their oaths of office

本文 Ms. Harris was sworn in first, using a Bible owned by Thurgood Marshall, the civil rights lawyer who became the first African-American to hold a seat on the Supreme Court. Mr. Biden, standing with his wife, Jill Biden, and children Ashley and Hunter, used a Bible with a Celtic cross that has been in his family since 1893.

Mr. Biden proclaimed that “democracy has prevailed” and called for unity in his Inaugural Address. “We must end this uncivil war — red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal,” he said.

After receiving gifts and signing documents at the Capitol, the new commander in chief reviewed the readiness of military troops in a ceremony on the East Front. Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris then traveled to Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, along with their spouses, also attended the ceremony.
