Thanks for the link Warbler.

Interesting to learn that there is also a statue of Everett Dirksen on the grounds of this building. I liked hearing him speak. A fine representative to have in DC with his skills at pulling sides together.

I am amazed at the detail in buildings from the 1800's. There is such refinement to them. Thanks for sharing this.

Viola! is right! I wouldn't think it was a newer building. I can guess who the statue is of. Thanks LJ.

Yes, Lyndee, this is the new one...1868. I took a photo of the old capitol building, too.

Yes, Pumpkin, this building just thinks it's so fancy.

Capitol Buildings are always very dramatic looking.
