FREE EVENT: The National Statuary Hall Collection: Who's In  and Who's Out?

Viewing the statues in the United States Capitol is a centerpiece of a visit there but it can be a confusing centerpiece. Guests discover statues honoring men such as Uriah Rose and George Shroup but will look in vain for a Roosevelt. And if every state was entitled to two statues, why do some seem to have three? This presentation will attempt to untangle some of the perplexities of the U.S. Valhalla.
