When our family visited the United States Capitol last year, besides hearing a farewell talk to pages by Illinois Congressmen Danny Davis and John Shimkus, we were taken to the area where states put statues of famous people.
I started seeing symbols of religious activity, so you know what I did next.
Unfortunately, I didn’t keep notes, so I don’t know what people from what states are holding the symbols.
This looks like a Bible and is being held by a man dressed in a frontiersman leather fringed coat.
Whether this would be allowed to be put in the Capitol in this era of political correctness is beyond me.
A Bible and leather.
