…So Help Me God
The Stories of the Bibles, and the Inaugurations, in American History
Someone forgot to bring a Bible to George Washington’s inauguration.
Leader that he was, Washington dispatched a rider, or perhaps it was a walker, to go to the nearby Masonic Lodge, of which he was a member, and borrow its copy. It was available and a tradition was born. So Help Me God by Michael Costanzo brings that tradition to life and tells of the fascinating journey each Bible took to make it to the Inauguration. In the vivid descriptions of each Presidential Inauguration, Costanzo also brings to the reader a colorful panorama of the changing social and cultural lifestyles of America.
