State Capitol

Alex's Sixth Grade class toured the capitol on Friday. The class picture is by the horses on the roof. The chandelier was lit which only happens a couple days each year. They light it on Statehood day (May 11), but since this year is the Sesquicentennial (150 years) they lit it for the entire weekend. The last two pictures are of a flag carried in the civil war. The last picture shows how the flagpole was fixed with a belt after it broke from being shot.
