In 1873, a ceremony was held for Ulysses S. Grant’s inauguration for his second term as president. For the ceremony, 150 canaries were brought in and intended to please guests with their singing, though the weather was not the best and all of the canaries froze to death. This 1873 Indian head cent recalls this inauguration accident.
