Need a quick hit of presidential history to help get you in the mood for President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony on Monday? Then you’ll love this C-SPAN clip, which compresses the inaugurations of every president since Ronald Reagan into a 36-second supercut.

Obama’s second official oath of office is actually happening at a private ceremony on Sunday, followed by a public ceremonial swearing-in Monday. Washington, D.C., officials and hotel owners aren’t expecting the same number of visitors for Obama’s 2009 inauguration, which drew an estimated 1 million-plus visitors. However, the D.C. metro system is still preparing to carry between 600,000 and 800,000 people to the event.
