Today we Vote, here in the USA. I thought I would give you some Rubies of our Nations Capital, Washington DC.
Our Nations' Capital Building
Below is the Smithsonian Castle,
dates back to the early 1800's.
Here is a little history of this building;
*"In 1826, James Smithson, a British scientist, drew up his last will and testament, naming his nephew as beneficiary. Smithson stipulated that, should the nephew die without heirs (as he would in 1835), the estate should go “to the United States of America, to found at Washington, under the name of the Smithsonian Institution, an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men.”...."
The Castle's Garden Court
