The U. S. Capitol: Hallowed Halls of Democracy

Few public buildings have a history as rich and fraught with significance as the U.S. Capitol Building.  The ghosts of famous names from the past look down from the walls and stalk the halls:  statesmen, power brokers, inquisitors, and pioneers, fresh from the wilderness.  The building itself, since the laying of its cornerstone in 1793, has undergone as many changes as the country it represents, its inhabitants serving as the voice of a people engaged in the work of building a nation.  Come, and we’ll walk the halls with the ghosts.
