Our Nations Capital

While we were in Washington DC, we toured the Capitol of The United States of America.  The original Capitol was designed by Dr. William Thornton and the corner stone was laid by President George Washington on September 18, 1793.  The Capitol grew along with the nation.  The ceiling of the rotunda shows George Washington surrounded by symbols of democracy and technological progress.   On top of the dome stands the statue of Freedom.  We saw the Old Hall of the House of Representatives which is now Statuary Hall.  Each state contributes two statues of its most notable citizens.  Marcus and Caroline’s favorite was Helen Keller which was the only statue you were aloud to touch.  The tours were very well organized but only allowed you to go to the rotunda and Statuary Hall and began with a film “Out of Many One.”
