Hundreds of people from Chatham and Liberty counties headed to Washington D.C. to watch the presidential inauguration.

Some of those folks stopped by one of the office of a Coastal Empire lawmaker, U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, before the festivities kicked off.

Gregory Higgins, of Savannah, called the momentum in the nation's Capitol extremely exciting.

He also said, for him, this inauguration has a special significance.

"It coincides with the MLK day and the first black president, so I'm very proud to be an American because this is the greatest country in the world," Higgins said.
