Welcome to the twenty-first stop on the book tour.

The bust above is by Gutzon Borglum, who is best known for carving Mt. Rushmore. It sits in the crypt beneath the rotunda.

This bust sits by a staircase near the rotunda. On the wall beside it, a tablet commemorates the soldiers who occupied the Capitol following Lincoln’s call for volunteers in 1861.
