Workers build the center camera stand last month in preparation for the inauguration on the West Front of the Capitol.
Though the inauguration is supposed to take place on Jan. 20, this year that date falls on a Sunday, so the ceremony will occur on Monday, Jan. 21. It will be only the seventh time in history that the mandated inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday and the second time the event will coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
