George W. Bush 2001 -Closed family Bible
George W. Bush had hoped to use the Masonic Bible
that had been used both by George Washington in 1789,
and by the President's father, George H. W. Bush,
in 1989. This historic Bible had been transported,
under guard, from New York to Washington
for the inauguration but, due to inclement weather,
a family Bible was substituted instead.

Barack H. Obama 2009 -Lincoln Bible
The Lincoln Bible commemorates the significance
of January 20, 2009, the day that
President Barack Obama was inaugurated,
using the Lincoln Bible to take
the presidential oath of office.
Bridging the historic nature of
both President Abraham Lincoln's
and President Obama's inaugurations.
