The Inaugural Address on the left is FDR’s third inauguration speech. This is historical because he the first president to break the precedent of a two term presidency set by George Washington when he stepped down from office in 1797. After this historic reelection Congress passed the twenty second amendment that limited Presidential terms to only two. FDR led the country through the Great Depression and World War Two even with polio. The New Deal brought America back from economic depression and gave many Americans jobs. The Inaugural Address on the right is from Ulysses Grants first inauguration speech. This during the peak of the Reconstruction Era after after Andrew Johnson was impeached. Grants speech consists of him asking the people to accept the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments which had recently been passed and had given rights to African Americans. He also calls for peace and honors the soldiers that fought in the Civil War. Grant knew that the still recovering from the Civil War and from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnsons failure, so he wanted to calm the people and let them know that he was there to serve them.
Citation: this map shows my hometown of Manasquan, New Jersey. The markers represent the location of my hometown and various places in my hometown that I like. Including the beach marked by the Atlantic Ocean, the river and more specifically the island in the River where I go in the summer on weekends with my friends and family to hang out, and lastly my favorite hiking place, Allaire State Park. The B on the map represents the road that leads to the beach where I work as a lifeguard in the Summer as well as where i go with my friends. Finally the faint grey triangle represents the water that surrounds the peninsula where my house is. We go kayaking through the creek and into the lake all the time in the summer, or go surfing.

I did an audio tour of the on campus pool or the alumni pool. I downloaded the music for free from www.chosic.com and gave creative credit to Darren Curtis. since I am on the swim team I spend a lot of time here. Between lifting in the alumni gym and hanging out in the locker room between practice and classes, this place is like a second home to me. I actually had one of my coaches record some of us practicing but unfortunately it was to long to fit into the minute required for the project.
