Description

The cornerstone of the Capitol was laid by George Washington in 1793. Seven years later, in 1800, Congress held its first session in the building, though construction wasn't complete. The two chambers of Congress meet in opposite wings of the Capitol, which is crowned by the Statue of Freedom, a female figure holding a sheathed sword in one hand and a laurel wreath and shield in the other.
