Me on the Supreme Court Steps
Ken and I on the plaza of the Supreme Court, in front of the Capitol
We were able to take a tour of the Capitol Building but were disappointed to find out that the tour did not include the Galleries so we were not able to see the House or Senate in action. Those passes have to be gotten from your Senator or Representative and we did not think to do that ahead of time.
I believe J.Q. Adams was the only President to afterwards become a US Representative.
The intention had been to busy George Washington in the floor here. However the family decided that wouldn't be fitting.
In the Library of Congress.
This was an extremely beautiful building!
On Capitol hill are the office buildings for all of the Representatives and Senators. We went in two of the Representative buildings to lobby for the Big "I". (Independent Insurance Agents organization.)
At the convention there were Insurance Agents (around 1500) from all over the country but they divided us up in groups according to where we were from. We were with some of the other Minnesotans and we visited Representatives from here.
The IRS building
The White House
Seeing that was pretty neat. I wished I would have worked harder to try to arrange a tour though. Someday I would really like to see inside.
Me on the other side.
The Department of Treasury
(it is next to the White House)
The Ronald Regan Building.
This is a huge complex with all sorts of Federal organizations in it.
