Grace stood for a moment to look at all of the statues and people inside of the Capitol's Visitor Center.
We wore headphones during our tour of the Capitol, which Grace loved! We had a fantastic tour guide who was so well versed in the interesting historical and architectural information of the building.
The Rotunda canopy with the fresco painting The Apotheosis of Washington was so beautiful.
Grace and I enjoyed the National Statuary Hall. I had not realized before our tour that in 1864, in accordance with legislation sponsored by Justin Morrill, Congress invited each state to contribute two statues of prominent citizens for permanent display in the room.
Grace and I found Vermont's statue of Ethan Allen in the Statuary Hall. When we returned home from our trip I did some research and learned that Maine has statues of William King and Hannibal Hamlin. I thought my Dad might be interested to know that one of the statues from Delaware is of Caesar Rodney. :)
