What was the inauguration?

I am not sure what you want to know. The election of 1828 led to the inauguration of Andrew Jackson on March 4, 1829. Jackson was a new type of President, being from the western frontier of the US, from an immigrant family and with no higher education. The actual inauguration was interesting since afterwards, Jackson supporters piled into the White House, did considerable damage and refused to leave at a decent hour. Jackson was forced to flee and find somewhere else to spend the night.
