The US Capitol
The United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., is among the most architecturally impressive and symbolically important buildings in the world. It has housed the meeting chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives for almost two centuries. Begun in 1793, the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored; today, it stands as a monument not only to its builders but also to the American people and their government. external image whitehouse.jpg THE WHITE HOUSE PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA images.jpgCLICK HERETO READ THE TRANSCRIPT OF OBAMA'S INAUGURAL SPEECH
