In this Jan. 20, 1981, file photo, President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan wave to onlookers at the Capitol building as they stand at the podium in Washington following the swearing in ceremony. The inauguration of the U.S. president is traditionally a highly- scripted celebration, with seating charts, schedules, dress rehearsals, and planning committees that map each moment of the history- making day from start to finish. But sometimes the unexpected happens. It was the first inaugural on the terrace, and the west front has been used ever since. But what happened minutes later made this Inauguration Day different from so many before Iran freed 52 American hostages it had held for 444 days. A complicated deal, worked out in the final weeks of the Carter administration, eventually secured their freedom. Reagan, however, announced to the nation that the hostages were on their way home.
