One of my favorite quotes by Lincoln is engraved on the wall in the exhibit on the level below his statue:
How perfectly logical.
We hit the major museums and although I was pretty familiar with them, they do seem to rotate their exhibits because I did not remember this piece and I just loved it:
A very cool combination weapon....a double barrel pistol grip cutlass! Positively badass.
We walked so much our legs are still sore......and this is from two folks who hike often! But we literally trudged on for miles on foot to see everything we could without relying on tour buses.
Rosa's favorite things were the exhibits on Human Origins in the Natural History, and some of the heart-breaking things she saw at the American History Museum on past immigration and early settlement of the country.
And here we are by the Capitol Building.
