Description

This work describes the building of the first Capitol building in Washington, DC. It follows its progress from the story of the iconography behind the design, the role of Washington and Jefferson in the planning of the design, and the account of the competition for the design - to the development of the exterior, House and Senate wings, and transformation into that building which exists today.show more
