On the Mall

Crowds swell at the National Mall on Sunday for "We are the One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration At The Lincoln Memorial" in Washington, D.C. The mall, which will be open to the public for the first time on Inauguration Day, stretches nearly two miles from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial.
